(Why Is Your) Heaven So Small?

For those of you who have not had the pleasure, allow me to introduce Susan Werner. She is an amazing singer-songwriter who writes across all sorts of genres. Her most recent album is comprised of songs reflecting on her life as a Christian. Enjoy.....

excuse me sir, what did you say?
when you shout so loud, it's hard to tell
you say that i must change my ways
for i am surely bound to hell

well i know you'd damn me if you could
but my friend, that's simply not your call
if god is great and god is good
why is your heaven so small

you say you know you say you've read
that holy bible up on your shelf
do you recall when jesus said
judge not, lest ye be judged yourself

for i know you'd damn me if you could
but my friend, that's simply not your call
if god is great, and god is good
why is your heaven so small

with your fists that shake, and your eyes that burn
what makes you do these things you do?
i would not be surprised to learn
someone somewhere excluded you

but my friend, imagine it if you would
a love much mightier than us all
o if god is great and god is good
why is your heaven
so small

We featured Susan on the Midnight Jukebox a couple of months ago - in fact, we posted this very track. As you say, excellent stuff, in deed.

Thanks for introducing me to Susan. I love that last line--"Why is your heaven so small??" Such a good question when so many Christians limit others' "access" as if they could.
