HEAVEN IS NEARER

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. (*)

 

 

(*) 2 Corinthians 2:9
