What is the everlasting state?
What happens man when breath expires?
Could non-existence be our fate?—
The creed of rabid God-deniers!
To eye unseen, to ear unheard,
Things man by learning cannot learn
But by His Spirit in His Word
The godly-wise His mind discern.
A state that starts where mortal ends
Where living man cannot explore;
Beyond the river’s final bend
Begins the everlasting shore.
It’s where the east and west converge
It’s where the north and south entwine
Where time and space and motion merge
Beyond some line of God’s design.
Earth’s gravity will loose its hold
And past and future won’t exist—
The saved of ages Christ behold
In reverential holy bliss.
Above the awesome panoply
Of countless shining distant stars,
Great twinkling blinking canopy—
Can you see Heaven’s door ajar?
John saw that door—was called inside—
Into the throne room of the King!
He saw the saints now glorified,
He heard the hosts of Heaven sing.
He wrote it all down in a scroll—
That we might know eternal things—
A comfort for the anxious soul
Who’s waiting for the King of Kings.
