There's A Place

There's a place
far beyond this river
far beyond this earthly shore.

That is where I'm going to be
with my Father Heavenly,
I am never going to die anymore.

I will walk down streets of gold,
pass the tree of life and gates of pearl
that will never close;

And, there I'll see King Jesus Christ
in all His glory and His light
with His saints whose numbers are untold.
Constance V. Walden  
While on earth, keep the faith. "Set your hearts on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God."  Colossians 3:1
