I saw it again today in the face of a little child
Looking through the eyes of fear and uncertainty
It echoed in a cry for freedom across the street and across the miles
Cries from the heart to find the missing part

CHORUS
Where is the hope, where is the peace?
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy, and girl
Looking for heaven in the real world

To stand in the pouring rain and believe the sun will shine again
To know that the grave is not the end
To feel the embrace of grace and cross the line where real life begins
And know in your heart you've found the missing part

CHORUS
There is a hope, there is a peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy, and girl
Looking for heaven in the real world
Heaven in the real world

BRIDGE
It happened one night with a tiny baby's birth
God heard creation crying and He sent heaven to earth

CHORUS
He is the hope, He is the peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy and girl
Looking for heaven in the real world

(Chorus)

    Looking toward the future, not the past, is the only way we can find the full meaning of what it is to experiance the true meaning of the kingdom of god. The kingdom of god is now, for us to shape for future generations. Live it, grow into it, bring it to life. (all) of us were created that we might find joy in it.
    Perhaps you're right captcha but i don't think so!
