You cannot imagine, in your wildest dreams,
Your imagination will fail.
To conjure up, yes, the simplest joy
That Heaven presents in detail.
It would bridge the gulf of hopelessness and
Faithlessness just one glimpse
Of that city beyond that He has prepared,
That is all it would take to convince.
But we are not of those who need convincing
We believe God’s Word! So we know
That what He promised He will fulfil!
That is what He came down to show!
A Man of His Word? Of course! He is God!
What He has promised He will do!
He did! He arose! He ascended to Heaven!
This we know to be true!
So many have died in this happy hope
Convinced of their home above!
The persecuted who welcomed death!
For the Heaven He promised in love!
“O death,” I do not see your victory,
“O grave,” thy sting is gone.
To die, to awaken in Heaven above!
Bright robe and spirit adorn!
“No eye has seen, nor ear has heard, no mind
Has conceived what The Lord
Has prepared for those who love Him, and
Prepare to meet Him above. (*)
