Along the stairway to Heaven The angels play their harps of gold They sing hymns of ceaseless praise To the prince of peace and king of kings. He came down from Heaven to take his place as man To pay the cost we could not pay was always the plan. I walk along the stairway to Heaven It is a long and challenging climb But I keep my eyes fixed ahead and I make some progress. I do not walk alone for there are many here with me The way we make it up is to help each other. Mary made a path for us and Jesus paved the way Joseph walks beside us lending us his strength Jacob dreams a ladder stretching from Heaven to earth. The cross became the bridge with which to cross The Grand Canyon that is between us and God. Sometimes I feel like I'm close to you Other times I'm miles away and in the dark. Be with me Lord and help me on the way Lord give me strength for the journey. At times the climb is more like a battle Fighting just to keep my feet from falling But when I lose hope I think I feel you calling. The stairway to Heaven will last a lifetime There are many gone before us to help show us To guide and encourage and challenge. Following their light to the source of all light. The stairway to Heaven is not always an easy climb But it has been well worth the struggle every single time.
