I may never see the Taj Mahal
or walk along China's great wall.
I may never sail among the Grecian Isles
or see the pyramids and the Nile.
I may never see the northern lights
or take in the view from the Golan Heights.
I may never visit the ruins of Rome
or taste delights that are yet unknown.
I may never stroll through a London fog
or dip my feet in a cranberry bog.
I may never see the Paris lights
or the Eiffel Tower ablaze at night.
I may ever scale Mt. Everest
or look into an eagle's nest.
I may never dance an Irish jig
or discover treasures in an archaelogical dig.
But in my heart I remain assured
that I will walk through gates of pearl
and live in a mansion new
and streets of gold within my view;
and stroll along the crystal sea
and climb the tree of life and eat.
But the most glorious sight of all to see
will be His hand reaching out for me.
