Have you jumped without a parachute

walked on silver sand

Have you breathed under water

or let a lion lick your hand


Have you climbed to the top of a mountain

and leaped onto the moon

Have you slid down a rope of stars

then collected them in a spoon


Have you ever seen a sea shell

from the inside

Have you poured joy from a bottle

which held every tear youíve cried


Have you skipped across the tree tops

or soared on eagleís wings

Have you shared a nest with a hummingbird

and painted each note he sings


Have you heard the sunís rays hit the ground

or seen raindrops purple and green

Have you tasted the flavors of flowers

or worn the crown of a king or queen


Have you ever known this freedom

that earthly ties canít bind

Have you longed for joy overflowing

and a place where people are kind


The place you yearn for is heaven

and to enter thereís only one way

Donít assume youíll have time on your deathbed

ask Jesus to save you today
