A Touch Of Heaven

All creation is burdened by sin
And softness is really quite hard
What we feel as gentle and light
Heaven reveals all has been marred.
For in heaven flowers are ethereal
With petals like gossamer wings
Their fragrance is as Holy incense
Drifting upward to God it sings.

The gardens of Earth may have beauty
But in heaven they cannot compare
Whose flowers are as jewels within silver
For the river of life doth flow there.
The streets of heaven are golden
Yet a gold that is crystal clear
And a sinner cannot walk upon them
For no footprint can ever come near.

The saints walk in pastures so green
In each bosom there is a white stone;
And they take their repose in the shade
Of the shadow that's cast by God's throne.
Yes, there is nothing on Earth that is soft
To us things just, seem to be;
But in heaven all things are of Spirit
Sometimes those things I can see.

Death

Death for the unbeliever
Is darkness filled with fear,
A place of shadows and wanderings
No peace can be found there.

But for the man who loves the Lord
Death, is but true gain;
Falling alseep into Christ's presence
The Christian knows no pain.
For to be absent from the body
Is to be present with the Lord;
For me to live is Christ -
My death, I will applaud!

Philippians 1: 21-23

  31.     

Eternal Things

NO longer do I look upon
Those things which do appear
They have become obscure to me;
As God does draw me near.
For eternal things I gaze upon
I see them more each day
That eternal weight of glory
And the revealing of the way.
The things which are eternal
Encourage me so I can cope;
Things like love, joy and peace
And the sure and certain hope.

Now, if I hope for what I see
I shall find no profit fair
But in the hope which is of faith
I have assurance there!
So that on the things that I can't see
I place my concentration,
Then God reveals his will to me
By giving revelation.

For that which is invisible
I see clearer each day;
Hope has become my substance
As faith's evidence lights the way.

2 Corinthians 4: 18

Hebrews 11

  32.     

First and Last

What a fleeting moment is
The spirit of our breath;
The length of days for every man
Brings with it certain death.
For, from the moment we are born
We then begin to die,
And all because of Eve
Who believed the Serpent's lie.
For when Adam tasted of the fruit
That the Lord our God forbid
Death's sentence passed upon all man
Sin's nakedness was not hid.
Now, in the Adam that was first
Creation groans in sin;
But in the Adam who is last
Eternal life we win!
Each Adam is a corporate man;
The first from earth is death
But the last Adam, from heaven came
To impart the Spirit's breath.

Romans 5: 1-15
