Details: What this song means? What “touch of heaven means?

The closest verse we can get in the Bible is taken from the book of Mathew chapter 6 verse 9-10, where Jesus told his disciples to pray, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

The verse is about asking God and His kingdom to come. This mean a lot to us as Christian including the will of God, His blessings, and His salvation which we can acquire through Jesus. So we can say that Jesus is a touch of heaven who God sent to us so we can feel His love from of all his perfection. Without Jesus, it will be difficult to understand everything on what heaven means to us as we are bounded to earth.

When it comes to the song, Hillsong wants us to tell that for us to feel the touch of heaven we need to listen despite of world’s distraction. We need to open our heart so Jesus have the way in our lives – a surrender.

The song is easy to play. I only added some chords that you can see inside parenthesis as this is how I interpret the way Hillsong play it. But as for major chords, you can just play it with D-F#m-A-E progression for verse and D-E-F#m-A for chorus.
