That's Heaven To Me

Sam Cooke & The Soul Stirrers, 1957

The things that I see as I walk along the street,
That's Heaven to me:

A little flower that blooms in May
A lovely sunset at the end of a day
Someone helping a stranger along the way
That's Heaven to me

The feeling I have when I hear a touching prayer
It makes me know the Lord is somewhere near
Even the birds flying around in the air
That's Heaven to me

It doesn't have to be a miracle
In order for me to see,
I know the goodness of my Saviour
Is everywhere to me

Even the children playing in the street
Saying a friendly hello to everyone that they meet
Even the leaves growing out, growing out, growing out
growing out on the tree
That's Heaven to me

Great tribute to a beautiful song--however, I think Sam sings about the leaves growing out on a tree.

That's just my opinion; I could be wrong.

Thanks, Erik - I trust your judgement on all things Sam Cooke related, and I've updated the lyrics accordingly! :)
