From the album Silent Prayer

Lyrics

Lead and Backing Vocals by: Debra Jacobs

There’s a woman that I’ve met
No one knows she waits all week
To rise Friday morning
While all the world’s asleep

She hurries to the synagogue
To sweeps the dust and dirt
And as she gathers scattered prayer books
She brings heaven down to earth

There’s a man that I’ve seen
At his fruit shop every day
He fills their empty baskets
He knows they cannot pay

His soft smile heals the sadness
And His kind words ease the hurt
As he fills another basket
He brings heaven down to earth

Chorus:
Bringing heaven down to earth
Where mundane meets divine
Where every person finds the chance
To change a place in time

Bringing heaven down to earth
Where the unexpected lies
And the further out you reach….
The more you touch the skies

There’s a mother that I know
With her phonebook open wide
She reaches half across the world
Without stepping foot outside

She remembers the forgotten
She reminds them of their worth
And as tonight becomes tomorrow
She brings heaven down to earth

There’s a bus driver in town
His route’s always the same
Yet nothing else is regular
He knows everybody’s name

He asks hows life the family
As if he’s known each one since birth
And as he shares his mornings happiness
He brings heaven down to earth

Chorus

There’s a truth I’ve been taught
That it doesn’t take much
To find that piece of heaven
In everything we touch

When just one expectant moment
Becomes beauty wrapped in time
In a simple act of goodness
We make this world divine

Chorus
So lets bring heaven down to earth
Where mundane meets divine
Where each of us can find our chance
To change a place in time

Yes, lets bring heaven down to earth
Where the unexpected lies
And the further we reach out,
Together we will touch the skies
