This Side of Heaven
Lyrics and Music by: Jennifer Sides

Waking up to the sounds of roaring thunder
As the hard rain falls unto the ground
Looking out into the endless fields of flowers
Sets the stage for the seasons to go on
Where the paintings try to draw a conclusion
Or capture a moment in time
I stand back and see a reflection
And Iím sure itís His smile

Thatís why Iím seeking His face this side of heaven
This side of heaven Iím believing itís true
That He is the reason worth living
So Iím giving my all
Cause itís all I want to do
On this side of heaven
On this side of heaven

Iím reminded of His tender grace and mercies
As the snow lays a blanket on the ground
Singing praises to the God of all creation
Oh, how sweet is the sound
When peace makes itís way into the valley
Itís restoring my soul every time
Lifting my eyes to the heavens
I know itís alright

Cause thereís no greater love than this
No greater love than His
That gives me peace on earth
And the hope inside my heart to carry on
The hope to carry on
