A good man has entered the City of God
And the golden streets welcomed him.
The dazzling light from the Father’s throne,
No shadows up there to dim!
For so many years his vibrant voice
Soared and echoed but now stilled.
Not stilled! Some cannot help remembering
The messages their hearts thrilled.
Not satisfied with just a show of hands,
His voice rang with urgent appeal
Compelling more people to come to God
With an urgent one could feel!
And this was his manner of life with all!
Not at all unreasonable!
As heaven is real the alternative too,
And very conceivable!
I think a medal-of-honor will do
Presented by Father above
And a big, “Well done, my faithful servant,”
Enter these courts of love!
But, of course, I have not gotten there yet.
So what do I know? This for sure,
I know that I will meet my good friend in heaven
His hope and his presence all pure!
