ETERNAL CITY

Of course, God answers every prayer!

A gentle no we may hear!

And many times it is wait awhile as

He seeks to draw you near!

.

.

Does He not know what we need?

Surely, you know He is aware!

Your every thought determining

As with others we share.

.

.

We forget at time that we are Eternal,

Tendency is to exist,

For this physical, visible, only!

Where it only consists!

.

.

“This is the only life I have,”

A TV commercial declares!

No soul, no spirit, just body here!

What hopelessness compares!

.

.

This life only, consider thoughtless!

Life has only one point.

May as well live it up, for sure,

Rest of life in some joint!

.

.

Life has meaning, preparing to dwell in

Eternity’s City, compare

Way beyond this vale, so empty

Full of fear and despair.

.

.

Most cults build their castle’s wide

Their dream cities and such,

This is it!  For this life only.

Why bother?  Why keep in touch?

.

.

“Let not your heart be troubled,”  Christ said,

“Fear not!  I am with you always!”

Eternal Life awaits you, meanwhile,

Have hope through remaining days!

.

.

“In My Father’s house,” soon you will see

Many homes await!

Lots of space in the Heavens above!

Forever joy!  What a date!

.

.

No tears up there!  Just endless joy!

Glorious, jubilant song!

Ageless, joyous, limitlessness,

Everlastingly belong!

.
