My earthly life has been so blessed,
I’ve seen and done so many things.
I’ve walked the roads of my Lord Jesus,
And I’ve seen the thrones of kings.
I’ve beheld the beauty of sky and land,
Of lakes and rivers and seas.
I still find shapes within the clouds,
And cherish a cool summer’s breeze.
I shook the hand of a President,
I met my childhood idol, and cried.
I know how it feels to be in love,
And mourn for those who have died.
I’ve known the love of family,
And the ups and downs of life.
I know how it feels to be undone,
And grow weary from all of the strife.
I know how it feels to be flying high,
With the mountaintops at my feet.
I know how it feels to crawl through mud,
And wish for death as a final retreat.
I’m in the middle of my life on earth,
And there’s a lot more for me to see.
But there is just one more ocean to cross,
That leads to eternity.
The glory that awaits me there,
Will surpass what I’ve seen so far.
A vacation from which I will need no rest,
And I’ll dine with the Morning Star.
On streets of gold, I’ll walk with Him,
And I’ll laugh and give Him praise.
I’ll hold His nail-scarred hand in mine,
As we enjoy our unending days.
