Lyrics

How I long to breathe the air of Heaven
Where pain is gone and mercy fills the streets
To look upon the one who bled to save me
And walk with Him for all eternity

There will be a day
When all will bow before Him
There will be a day
When death will be no more
Standing face to face
With He who died and rose again
Holy holy is the Lord

Every prayer we prayed in desperation
The songs of faith
We sang through doubt and fear
In the end we’ll see that it was worth it
When He returns to wipe away our tears

There will be a day
When all will bow before Him
There will be a day
When death will be no more
Standing face to face
With He who died and rose again
Holy holy is the Lord

On that day we join the resurrection
And stand beside the heroes of the faith
With one voice a thousand generations
Sing worthy is the Lamb who was slain

On that day we join the resurrection
And stand beside the heroes of the faith
With one voice a thousand generations
Sing worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Forever He shall reign

So let it be today
We shout the hymn of Heaven
With angels and the Saints
We raise a mighty roar
Glory to our God
Who gave us life beyond the grave
Holy holy is the Lord

So let it be today
We shout the hymn of Heaven
With angels and the Saints
We raise a mighty roar
Glory to our God
Who gave us life beyond the grave
Holy holy is the Lord
Holy holy is the Lord
Holy holy is the Lord

About This Song

"This song is all about bringing Heaven to this moment with the way we act, the way we speak, and the way we live. Its about letting Jesus be the King and letting His rule and His way take over."
-Phil Wickham

This song is all about how the Kingdom of Heaven is here right now. Jesus tells us in scripture that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, and as Christians we show the world the Kingdom of Heaven through the ways that we live. Sometimes we look forward to the day when we have access to the Kingdom of Heaven, but it is important that we remember that the Kingdom of Heaven is already alive through Christ in us.
