This is Heaven to Me

D - G - D - A - D

 

I [D]find many people who [A]cant understand

Why I am so [A7]happy and [D]free

I've [D7]crossed over Jordan to [G]Canaan's fair land

And [D]this is like [A]heaven to [D]me

 

Oh [D]this is like heaven to [A]me

Yes this is like [A7]heaven to [D]me

I've [D7]crossed over Jordan to [G]Canaan's fair land

And [D]this is like [A]heaven to [D]me

+ instrumental = CHORUS

I've heard the sweet music the heavenly chorus

From glory land over the sea

The soul thrilling message from Jesus my lord

And this is like heaven to me

 

I'm looking for Jesus in glory to come

From glory land over the sea

A cloud of bright angels to carry me home

And that will be heaven to me

+ instrumental = CHORUS
