Where Is Your Heaven
by Mary Cannon

Not For Sale

What map are you following?
What road, are you on ?
Are you shouting and talking, not living heaven
and still singing, the same old song

Has your body become a living sacrifice
so God can use you each day
Or is it only for, the Sunday church service
and the other six, you go your own way

Do you love your enemies like the bible says?
and forgive those who do you wrong
Do you shake their hands, when you meet
or do you quickly hurry along


What about when ones, despitefully use you
does your heart take revenge in return
Did the message prick your heart, when you heard it
or did your anger, begin to burn

When church is out then what do you do
did you leave the Lord behind
Why didn't you take him with you
so he'll be with you all the time

Suppose God had need, of you on Monday
or maybe every day of the week
Will you try to avoid that still small voice
and will other things you seek

God needs a vessel so he can work through
it's not very much that he ask
So why not take Sunday, with you every day
for heaven comes with some kind of task

You can have heaven whatever day arrives
it can be with you through the night
Wherever you go it will be there
for it's within you like a glorious light

Well the pews are empty until the next service
no shouts, no songs to be heard
What happened to the joy and hot testimomies
where did you put God's word

It's easy to talk it, behind closed doors
and every strand of hair is in place
But what about when the music stops
will the smile still be on your face

For those tests and trials will be waiting
it's all a part of heavens plan
We will not go there, on a bed of rose's
or without obeying God's command

If there's any hang ups, it's best to admit them
then God can help us when we do
and it matters not, what any of them are
God forgave David, so why not you

He takes our weakness's to make us strong
it brings hunbleness in a good way
Through his strength we're made whole
that's why we should always pray

When we're open and honest with God
it's giving him the key to our hearts
Where he can fix each and every little nick
and he gets joy in doing his part

That's why our church is with us every day
rather in the building or not
For the other six days, are just as important
and will keep us, out of, the hot spot
