”The heavens declare…” Do we really need that?
Just look at yourself, whether skinny or fat,
You are a masterpiece! Cannot begin to portray
Your functions, physique, how to convey…
Well, your heart for one, is it pumping? And why?
It is pumping and if it quits, you will die!
Are you working the handle or switch? Well, no!
Then what keeps it beating? Does my ignorance show?
Explain! Well, of course, only God can do that!
But I know one thing, if it stops I fall flat!
If it stops this I know, I function no more!
Than what? I will anticipate Heavens fair shore!
We do not worry about that! I look forward, do not you?
There are many who do not, it is sad but it is true!
I anticipate changing, maybe drastic, but wait
Just one moment, and then arrive at Heaven’s Gate!
Do not know about you but the wait does seem long,
But it will not be too painful, I will still have a song!
In Heaven I will contemplate earth’s time was so short
Though I never attempted or thought to abort!
The song drowns out every thought of before
The worry, the fret of that brief earthly shore!
Forgotten at last! The glad song finds its way
To lift me to God’s blissful Eternal Day!
