The lyrics to this song have been posted here before, but they are buried in a longer, BS thread here (click).

This song deserves to be "above the line" and really should have its own thread too, I think.

(WHY IS YOUR) HEAVEN SO SMALL?
(Susan Werner)

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.
Oh, if God is great and God is good,
Why Is Your Heaven So Small?

I didn't have it bottled up, my anonymous "GUEST," but I did just now find it at YouTube.

Here's one of the two YT videos of Susan singing Why Is Your Heaven So Small?

Another video of Susan singing her song:
Susan Werner at the Tin Angel: "Heaven So Small"


There seem to be several different videos of Susan doing this song and several of her other songs, but most of them don't come up when you do a search for "Susan Werner." I found 2 of the videos of "Heaven So Small" by searching for that title and the others in the sidebar when I clicked on one of those.
