SONG: Heaven's Come to Earth



I've been rereading Scott Hahn's The Lamb's Supper. As I've mentioned before, this is a book about the Mass and its relationship to the Book of Revelation (among other things), and how the Mass is supposed to sorta prefigure Heaven and sorta be the Kingdom itself. (Sorta being the technical term. Yup, I are a theologiogiogian!)

Anyway, this is what I've got.

Heaven's Come to Earth
Words: Maureen S. O'Brien, 5/1/05
Music: "A Ei Di'r Deryn Du?" (Blackbird, Will You Go?), Welsh trad.

God Who dwells on high
Still makes this house His own,
Takes us to be His saints,
And makes our hands His throne.

Heaven's come to Earth;
Earth samples Heaven's feast.
Christ is the Lamb we share,
And Christ is our High Priest.

Bow before the Lamb,
The Shepherd, the Gate of the fold --
I AM, who sent the ram
To Abraham of old.

Remade as His flesh,
In Him, His Church is one:
Both we still on the quest,
And those whose wand'ring's done.

With the angels, sing
For Him forever. Praise
Him for Eternity
Drawn into all our days.
