Verse #1 sung softly and slowly

I sit here alone
at the end of the day
and think of my friend
who has passed away.
I fondly remember
as I sat by her bed
she softly whispered
to me and said...

Chorus: (upbeat and lively)

"There are twelve pearly gates
in that City up there -
just name me One
and I'll meet you there.
When I arrive...
I'll wait for you
then hand in hand
we'll walk right through."

Verse #2: (soft and slow)

A little boy
who was only nine
was slowly sinking
into time.
I fluffed the pillow
beneath his head
put my hand in his
and then I said....

Chorus: (Upbeat and happy)

"There's twelve pearly gates
in that City square
Just name me one
and I'll meet you there
When I arrive
I'll look for you
then hand in hand
we'll march right through."

Verse #3: (slow delivery)

My brother fought
in a foreign land
and died on the battlefield
with this note in his hand...
"Tell my loved ones
we've got a date,
and not to forget
we'll meet at the Gate."

Chorus: Lively and upbeat

"Yes, there's twelve pearly gates
in that city up there
just name me one
and I'll meet you there;
when I arrive
I'll wait for you
then hand in hand
we'll ALL march through!
Yes, Indeed! We'll All March Through!

(Background singers softly singing in a rthymic beat...in the background "Gad", "Dan", "Judah", "Levi", "Asher"..etc, etc, Benajamin, Reuben" etc,)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This poem was set to music by a composer named Kruno of Kitchner, Ontario - and on October 15, 2010 was entered into a "Songwriters Contest"...the Winning results will come out in November (2010)sometime - and perhaps the whole world will hear the words of "At The Gates" - and have Hope. I can now add "Songwriter" to my profile...giving me a sense of pride. (Sorry, I know pride is a "no no", but it is the thought that my lyrics may be heard and be affected by the words.)

How very, very clever! If I were a song writer, I'd love to put this to music for you. I can see now some youth choirs singing this, or some popular Christian vocal groups performing it. I found myself starting to sing along and I didn't even have a melody in mind. What a creative piece of work! Just like you! A real creative piece of work! (smile)

What a neat idea, MariLyn! I'm only familiar with "Just inside the Eastern Gate...." but I don't know what other name it might go by. Since one of my beloved great-uncles carried the name of one of Joseph's sons, "Ephraim," I think that's where I will look to meet all my loved ones! Besides that, Joseph is just about my most favorite Old Testament figure. See ya there, friend!
