Hymn Sheet Music with Chords
"Can There Be a Place?"

Hymn sheet music with chords "Can There Be a Place?" is a song about losing Paradise, the beautiful place with no death or sorrow - but regaining it through Christ.

This song is about longing for Paradise Lost

"Paradise Lost" is the name of a famous poem/book by John Milton, written around the time of the translation of the King James Bible. 

hymn music for piano

Telling the story of the long-ago great war in heaven after the fall of Satan and his cohort of angels, Milton depicts the subsequent involvement of Satan in the affairs of Adam and Eve, tempting & deceiving Eve, and thereby bringing both Adam and Eve and all their race under his dominion.

A song about Paradise and the Fall

This song attempts to retell this story with very simple words that a child could understand - or a grief-stricken person.  

There has been so much to weep about in recent times - loss, and anger at what seems to be unnecessary loss and suffering.  These words make me cry, but also remind me of the HOPE that we who know Christ have.

"What words are these, of a Cross, and a God of love, and Man binding death for all time?"  Ultimately, we - through Christ! - will win through.

The piano arrangement is certainly not easy.  However, the lead sheet is, for any instrumentalist:

Can There Be a Place?

Can there be a place where no blight makes the blossom fall?

Where frost never blackens the vine?

Where death never comes, and the young have no pain, nor fear?

Where night has no place, and no time?

How dark are my eyes for the souls of this world, for beauty born to dying.

I hear long ago that the world was a Paradise,

Where beauty endured in each kind.

A foe entered in, and beheld man and woman there,

He said, "What you've heard is a lie,"

And led them away from the home that they knew

To learn of sorrow and dying.

Oh, where can I go?  Where is beauty and holiness?

And how can I see when I'm blind?

And what words are these of a Cross, and a God of love,

A Man, binding death for all time?

Oh, this is the One who arose from the grave

To turn His people from dying.
