Topic: Eternity (03/10/11)

So much can be said
yet nothing understood
not as a human
not unto ourselves
In the coming of the end
the climax of our days
leading to God
eternal, always

Rising from the grave
as did the Christ
by Godís loving hand
the strength of his grace
leading on, to the highest heaven
only in this does
our life here make any sense

Journeying only, on this mortal coil
the stuff of the earth
and made of the clay
Salt from the earth
salt must we stay
yet carrying Godís light
to show others the way

All of us growing
if we spend time in the word
rising, abiding
in the vineyards, the fields
coming to the harvest
the judgment of God

Sowing our seeds
that the harvest would be greater
that the street of heaven
would be filled with all of Godís children
eternally seated in the courts of the Lord
singing in heaven, with the heavenly chorus
joyful noise ringing
for all eternity
