My Idea of Heaven
When I read that you've gone to prepare a place for me
I don't imagine a marvelous mansion
filled with opulent furnishing.
I imagine a cottage set in the forest
a brook behind
and a porch where we can meet
and to talk, to laugh, to share our hearts.
This would be Heaven for me, dear Lord,
so...would it be too bold of me
to ask that you design my mansion
with this cottage in mind?
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so,
I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
