Eternal Dwelling

A spaceship’s travel would never cease
To arrive at the place where Christians find peace.
This beautiful, gorgeous, radiant place
Cannot be seen by human face.

It's unspeakable, unutterable, no words can describe
Its deep glory and color that are seen inside.
Tall, tall mansions and fresh green grass,
Millions of people in an uncountable mass.

The source of light shines every place,
As it’s radiance flows from the Son’s being and face.
When you look at the ground you see your reflection
Through the crystal, gold mirror of perfection.

When you stand at the peaceful, flowing river
A thought may come about the merciful Giver.
The One who died so you could be
In Heaven for all eternity.

There are four living creatures with many faces n’ eyes
Who together in one voice all cry,
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come.”

Then the twenty-four elders cast their crowns and fall
Before the King who has power, the Creator of all.
Among those worshiping all around, you might see Paul
Or Nehemiah, who rebuilt the wall.

When you stand in the rays of God’s glorious light,
His glory you can’t resist and His power you can’t fight.
Now unable to stand, you’ll fall to your knees
And bow to the Creator of the heavens and seas.

Suddenly, the hosts of Heaven join in and sing,
“Holy, holy is the Lamb that was slain!”
Tears will form as you look around,
At the angels in the air and the saints on the ground.

Then in one accord, will sing,
“All praise be given to the King!”
Then I’ll sing too, with love my heart swelling,
In the place where Christians go; our Eternal dwelling.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
