Looking Down From Heaven

Looking Down From Heaven

Verse 1

Looking down from heaven

Jesus weeps for the children

Hearing their cries and feeling their pain

Seeing them hurting and killing each other

In violent acts and wars everywhere

Violence and wars, causing such devastation 

Lost lives and shattered hopes and dreams

Why don’t they stop hurting each other?

Didn’t He tell them to love one another, over and over again

Why don’t they listen to Him?

Loving one another means caring for others, not hurting and killing them

Loving one another means loving everyone

As Jesus said, God made the sun rise on and the rain come down on our enemies too

Chorus

God gave us eyes to see this beatiful world with

Ears to hear the rain pouring down and every sound under the sun

God gave us a heart and mind to use to find Him and love Him

And a desire to become more like Christ every day

God gave up his Son, God gave us his love

A reason to live

And everything good in this world

Verse 2

Looking Down From Heaven

Jesus weeps for the children

Hearing their cries and feeling their pain

Seeing the hungry, the homeless,

The weak, the downtrodden

The sad, the lonely and the oppressed

Seeing poverty, hopelessness, addiction

Depression, sickness, and indescribable pain

Seeing unborn children who die before they draw their first breath

And children abandoned, unloved, and abused

Seeing such suffering and pain, no words can convey

Loving one another means having genuine love and compassion for others

Feeling their pain, as if it were our own

And doing evrything we can, to help those who are hurting

Because our hearts are breaking, when we see their pain

Chorus

God gave us eyes to see this beautiful world with

Ears to hear the rain pouring down and evry sound under the sun

God gave us a heart and mind to use to find Him and love Him

And a desire to become more like Christ every day

God gave up his son, God gave us his love

A reason to live, and everything good in this world

Verse3

Looking down from heaven,

Jesus weeps for the children

Hearing their cries and feeling their pain

Seeing all over this world, so many lost souls

So many people who don’t know about Jesus

How God sent down from heaven his only son

To die on the cross to save us from our sins

So that if we repent from our sins and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior

Placing our faith and trust in him and submitting our lives to his will,

Then we will not perish, and will have everlasting life

Seeing so many people, who don’t know of God’s saving grace and his enduring, all consuming love for us

Loving one another means sharing with others, sharing the story of Christ with the lost

The only way to God is through Jesus Christ

Chorus Repeat

 Verse 4

Looking down from heaven, Jesus weeps for the children

Hearing their cries and feeling their pain

Seeing the children hurting and killing each other

Seeing the children in such suffering and pain

Seeing the children, so many lost souls

Jesus weeps for the children,

Jesus weeps for this world

Loving one another means loving everyone in this world

Loving one another means feeling love and compassion for others

Loving one another means sharing the story of Christ with the lost

The only hope for this world is Christ

Belief in Him alone can bring us from the darkness into the light

 Repeat Chorus

 

May God forgive us for Iraq and Lebanon and Palestine and the war we are trying to start with Iran and all the other wars we wage and support. May God forgive us and turn us from evil and  stop us from the evil we are perpetrating on the innocent, on your creations and children, God, through our wars.

 

In Jesus name I pray, Amen
