To eyes of faith the futureís fair,
Far fairer than faint sight beholds;
Earthís great and grandest canít compare
Nor human genius can declare
Truth Spirit-quickened to the soul.

The Spirit has the Fatherís mind,
The deepest mysteries unveils;
Without His life weíre walking blind,
In carnal bonds our hopes confined;
The day will come when mortal fails.

The heart of man with hopes earthbound
Sets all its store on things below;
The day they put him in the ground
With speeches grand and looks profound
Where will his soul and spirit go?

The man of faith has set his sights
Where Christís prepared for him a home;
His gaze is fixed on Heavenís heights
Where night and day his soul delights
In worship at the Fatherís throne.

High hopes in ransomed hearts aflame
Who see beyond the mortal sphere
By faith they know the One who came
Will very shortly come againó
The footsteps of their Lord they hear.


Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. I cor 2:12 nkjv.

Amen. Beautifully written. God Bless~

So beautifully put! I honestly donít understand how those without the hope and expectation of Christís return and heaven can even deal with just the emptiness of purpose in this life. Good job! Enjoyed!

This is so lyrical, it could almost be made into a hymn - but then maybe it already is. Such a good message as well.
Congratulations on your EC.
