Everything of this earthly life
Is temporary, fleeting, gone in
Blink of eye or with the wind.
Even memories are fragile
Some like gossamer veil
Tissue easily torn…
But my God is Everlasting
Forever Eternal…His great love
Too, ever-Present, binding me
With mercy, grace for Everyday.
Eyes! Look not so much on what is
Transient, but all that is unseen…
Grand gleaming glory, Everlasting.
Heart! Endeavor now, sow to Holy
Spirit…soon reap best Life Eternal’s
Rest, gift of Jesus’ sacrifice promised
To believers who receive Him… for
God desires that no one perish.
When curious faith-walk here does
End, He’ll call me to blessed mansion
Waiting…forever home, in Father’s house.
