Oh what joy in that morning,
When our Lord returns to Earth.
To receive those dead and living,
Who were born that second birth.
When we rise from all corruption,
Leave behind this mortal clay.
Drop the feeble man of nature,
Overcome death and the grave.
We shall find that blissful morning,
A day like none thatís dawned before.
Immortal souls forever living,
With Christ on eternal shores.
We along with all the Angels,
Down through and endless age.
Will proclaim and honor Jesus,
The Lamb of God.
Which man had slain,
Who can tell the heights of glory?
Or the depths of joy to be.
Who would know the breadth of heaven?
The length of love He gave for me.
He is calling at this moment,
Todayís the day you can be saved.
But if you wait till His arrival,
Youíll find then it is to late.
Many left, will constant wonder,
Where their loved ones all could be.
In hopeless days they search for answers,
In futile ways they all will grieve.
With our lamps trimmed and burning,
We must faithful watch and pray.
With our wedding garments ready,
For the marriage on that day.
For one day His voice will beckon,
All who hear this voice will say.
We magnify thee loving Savior,
For itís through you, that we are saved.

need to seperate your stanzas here. The image was good, but I got little lost without spacing giving me thot reference points.

I really enjoyed this look at joy. Like David said, spacing would have made for easier reading. Your writing reveals a heart for God.

I have always loved the wedding imagery in the Bible. Very nice poem. I agree - more white space would make it even better.
