Cooke, Sam - That's Heaven To Me Lyrics

The things that I see
As I walk along the streets
That's heaven to me

A little flower that blooms in May
A lovely sunset at the end of a day
Someone helping a stranger along the way
(That's heaven to me)
That's heaven to me

The feeling I have when I hear a touching prayer
It makes me know, the Lord is somewhere
Even the birds flying around in the air
(That's heaven to me)
That's heaven to me, no

It doesn't have to be a miracle
In order for me to see, I know
The goodness of my, my Savior
Is everywhere to me, woah, woah, woah

Even the children playing in the street
Sing a friendly hello to everyone that they meet
Even the leaves blowing out, blowing out
Blowing out, blowing out on the tree
(That's heaven to me)
That's heaven to me, woah, woah

Woah woah, woah woah, woah Lord

Cooke, Sam That's Heaven To Me Comments

  2. Dr. killpatient

    Unfortunately, Sam was the living embodiment of a Jekel & Hyde. And, one tawdry, twisted night he paid for it with his life. Let's just pray, for those of us who continue to love him, & how much he means to our lives; that he didn't pay with his soul.

  3. Doll Baby

    This may b a satanuc earth, but the Almighty is always protecting me. All be blessed.

  4. Wacky WondeR

    Love this man's voice.  Favourite singer of all time for me.  My mother and I usually argue, as she is an Otis Redding fan.  I do love Otis, as you feel his songs to the bone, but for me, Sam takes it.  He has that gut wrenching soulful voice that can take you to church or that smooth captivating voice that can belongs on any radio station or music hall.  Also love Farewell My Darling, Jesus Wash Away My Troubles and A Change Is Gonna Come.                                                                                                                                                     Some other positive songs if interested : Al Green - God Is Standing By / Emeli Sande - Next To Me / Mr. Vegas - Nobody Greater                                                              Bless you all.

  13. Jerry Weems

    Sam Cooke's music is the soundtrack of my life in growing up in rural Mississippi. I discovered Sam Cooke as a child through my mother who introduced me to him when I was six years old. She loved him. I have never heard such a beautiful, melodious, and dulcet voice in all of my life. Today, I am still inspired by his timeless music. His voice takes me back to the days of my childhood. I will always love Sam Cooke.

  52. Angela M

    Love this man's music, have loved it my whole life.

  53. Freeman Burgess

    My brother loved Sam Cooke's voice, and I began to appreciate it at an early age too. His talent was unique and is still elite. He could go from a soothing and mellow tone to a powerful controlled crescendo like the waves on a beach.

    Stephen Miholick

    +Freeman Burgess I agree Freeman, his voice was Angelic to me. Give's me chills every time I listen to him sing. The only problem with his music was his songs were only 2 minutes long.

    Cynthia Franklin

    what a gift! Sam Cooke I Love hear his music I tell you the true that's real music

    CocoaFemme 1015

    Benjamin Pritchett: It's just been in recent months that I have known Sam Cooke even sang Gospel!! The only songs I knew from him before were: Twistin' The Night Away, Cha, Cha, Cha, Chain Gang & I'm In A Sad Mood!! Upon discovering his Gospel Collection, MANY of them move me to TEARS, which RARELY happens!!

  60. Mimi Dudley

    I'm absolutely loving this song. My favorite spiritual song.

    Someone stopping to help a stranger along the way, thats heaven to me!

  61. Alpha XXL

    My dad raised me right. Sam Cooke is all he listens to from the time I was little til now as we speak. Its a tragedy what happened to Sam Cooke. I just wish he was here to get these no singers in line.

  62. KCT

    What a sublime singing voice. Perfect. Oh, I wish people would listen to this style and copy IT, instead of some of the divas.
    I never tired of this singing voice.

    Sheila Davis

    KCT.It most certainly would be a waste of time ,strength & effort to even try to copy Sam Cooke & there would be no need of trying not even for 1 second 🎶 & 🎶

  63. Author Christopher Ware

    It's been years since I have heard this song!!! It reminds me of my loving late mother Gussie B. Odom. RIP my love!!!
