On The River's Shore!
Don't waste your tears over my old body~|
For they are wet and will make me cold...
Tears do not fit the occasion at all,
Because it's the time God picked for me and I am old!
I have lived a long, long time, and there is something calling me~
It sounds like the voice of Jesus, and oh, how it makes me happy...
I know He is coming for me, and will take me to a place, so divine,
A place I have always longed for, it's God's Garden Of Sunshine!
There the water trickles over the rocks in a sparkling stream~
And happiness fills this old heart, I know it's real, not a dream...
I am in the arms of Jesus, and tenderly He carries me home,
All my sins are forgiven and I am pure, and I am His own!
Glory, Glory to the Lord, for with Great Love He has gifted me~
I have finally arrived in Heaven, where I always wanted to be...
Now nothing can hurt me here, I am sick no more~
Here in God's Garden Of Sunshine, on the river's shore!
Written for a challenge by Starlight1 called Poet's Choice! I chose
'God's Garden Of Sunshine.'
