Preview of Paradise
Preview of Paradise - Words by Phil Upton Music by Andy Cummings

In the beginning the world at its birth
Had need of the meaning of Heaven and earth
So by some miracle parting the sea
He called the islands of Hawaiʻi to be
He had reached out with a firm and gentle hand
Made valleys green and every mountain rise
And lined the shores with grains of golden sand
To share a preview of paradise

He must have cried with tears of joy that rain might fall
Made flowers rare and every bird that flies
And told the sun to hide away for one and only
Share a preview of paradise
He must have smiled upon a throne from Heaven above
While making rainbows all across the sky
And say "Aloha", the finest word for love
To share a preview of paradise
