You can hear it said quite often,
"I know Heaven Is My Home";
But no-one is in a hurry
to begin that trip alone.
It's a one-way trip to Heaven...
To their Mansion that awaits;
But they can't take friends and loved ones
with them, through those Pearly gates.
And there's something about leaving,
while their loved ones are still here.
All alone, facing that journey...
So, I guess that is their fear.
They just want to "live" forever;
Death is not their favorite thing...
They're "afraid" to go to Heaven,
where the Angels always sing.
Yet I have my own opinion,
of what "death" will bring for me.
And I know I won't feel lonely,
All Because of "Calvary".
Jesus promised He'd be with me;
'Said I'd never be alone;
I believe "On Wings of Love"
That my Lord will take me home".
I will wear a robe of white and then
At last His face I'll see.
I know death is just "A Stairway"
To the one who died for me.
I can hardly wait to see that
"Holy One of Galilee";
That has been my one desire,
since I heard He died for me.
What a thrill to touch His face;
To hold the hands of "God's own Son"
and I'll cherish That one moment,
When He says, "My Child Well Done".
"Death Is Nothing But A "Stairway"
To "God's Heaven" Up Above.
Jesus has for me, a "mansion"
and my "Deed" Is Signed "With Love".
