Scars In Heaven Lyrics

If I had only known the last time would be the last time
I would have put off all the things I had to do
I would have stayed a little longer, held on a little tighter
Now what I’d give for one more day with you

Cause there’s a wound here in my heart where something’s missing
And they tell me that it’s going to heal with time
But I know you’re in a place where all your wounds have been erased
And knowing yours are healed is healing mine

The only scars in heaven, they won’t belong to me and you
There’ll be no such thing as broken and all the old will be made new
And the thought that makes me smile now even as the tears fall down
Is that the only scars in heaven are on the Hands that hold you now
I know the road you walked was anything but easy
You picked up your share of scars along the way
But now you’re standing in the sun, you’ve fought your fight and your race is run
The pain is all a million miles away

Hallelujah, Hallelujah. Hallelujah, for the Hands that hold you now
There’s not a day goes by that I don’t see you
You live on in all the better parts of me
Until I’m standing with you in the sun,
I’ll fight this fight and this race I’ll run
Until I finally see what you can see

5 stories about "Scars In Heaven"

  • Lori says:

    This is such an impactful song. It reminds me of my daughter taken by suicide 14 years ago. I cry every time I hear it. Both sad and happy. It’s the promise that all of our pain will be taken away, our scars will be healed and that Jesus will be there to greet us when our day comes.

  • Beatrice Rothschadl says:

    I heard this song I think after Christmas, & it really hit home, I’m dealing with 2 different Cancers, one Melanoma, & the other Paget’s disease. Melanoma worse, & many days I’m ready to go home & leave all the scars behind, But God wakes me every morning to great a new day, So I know he still has a plan for me. With GOD we have to plan together.

  • Carolyn Schallert says:

     “that the only scars in Heaven are on the hands that hold you now” touched me because I have been dealing with a recent family death and this reminder of our perfection by Jesus’ wounds really comforted me tonight.

  • Edward "OT" Overturf says:

    I recently lost the love of my life. She passed away one year to the day after we moved into our retirement community. She is a child of God, and over the years she touched too many lives to count. She spent time daily in the Word and shared it freely any time she could. I continue to pray that the lives she touched will have a ripple effect of people leading people to the truth of God’s Word.

  • Judy says:

    14 years since I lost the love of my life and still I miss him so. When I listen to scars in heaven I know he sits with Jesus and feels the scars on his hands. This brings a smile along with tears. Songs can be so powerful and this one is.
