Tune: "Sing to Me of Heaven"
There's a ho-ly ci-ty com-ing down from God.
John de-sribes a place of joy for all the saved
With foun-da-tions made of gems and gates of pearl,
And the streets of it with pur-est gold are paved.
There'll be no more cry-ing, nei-ther death nor pain.
God and Je-sus are the light. The Lord will reign.
God has said that He will make all things brand new.
We look for this ci-ty for we know it's true.

What Is Heaven Like?
By Beverly Lewis, illustrated by Pamela Querin / Bethany
What will it be like to live with God forever? A boy and his sister wonder that one day when they are missing their recently deceased grandfather. Curious, the boy sets out on a mission to find out, and he won't give up until he asks everybody he knows about eternity! Your children will love Beverly Lewis's engaging story and Pamela Querin's imaginative illustrations--and you'll appreciate the solid teaching from Scripture on every page. It poignantly addresses the questions kids ask most when they are coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. The final page offers suggestions for parents and Christian educators. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
What Happened When Grandma Died
By Peggy Barker / Concordia Publishing House
The death of a loved one is hard enough for and adult to understand and accept. Even more profound is a child's sense of confusion and loss upon the death of someone near and dear. In What Happened When Grandma Died, Peggy Barker presents life and death in terms a child can understand easily. She addresses sensitively the contradictions a young child faces upon hearing a deceased relative is "in heaven with Jesus" and then seeing the body in the funeral setting. Scripture verses help the child understand the experience and reinforce the joyful hope of heaven. A simple story, a comforting message, and a solid Christian context make What Happened When Grandma Died a book to be shared by young and old alike whenever a dear one dies.
