about

Writing for this song originally began on 1/4/2003, and was inspired by revelation from the Father that we are actually raised with Christ Jesus and seated in heavenly places with Him. Kyle Steed was also a part of the inspiration because we were hanging out together as newly born-again believers in Christ, having a good time worshiping and fellowshipping in the Spirit. This song is not saying that heaven is a place on earth, but that we are in heaven spiritually, in Christ. While our bodies are physically here, the ultimate reality is that our Spirit is already residing in heaven with the Father.

lyrics

Heavenly Places
© 2012 Daniel Wall

So you've been told Heaven is
Way up above you
I tell you it's as close as
The ground beneath you

You've been told Heaven is
Far away from you
But it's just as close as
Who you stand next to

Yes you have been told
Heaven is somewhere to get to
but you're there with God in Christ
so peace be with you

We are seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus
Seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus

Since you've been raised with Christ
set your hearts on things above
Our citizenship is in Heaven
and we eagerly await a Savior from there

Seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus

it's who we are
it's who we are
it's who we are
it's who we are…

not by works, not by works, not by works
it's by Grace, by Grace
by Grace

Seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus
Heavenly Places
