~ An Hour With You ~



"The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the LORD,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God."
Isaiah 40:3

This Side of Heaven

We’re on this side of heaven
But we won’t be here too long
Passing like a summer breeze
In the lyrics of a song.

T’will be over before we know it
The years are slipping away
The days of youth have passed us by
Now part of yesterday.

The hands of fate keep ticking on
Time has no sympathy
It never stopped for Jesus
It won’t stop for you and me.

We do not know the hour in which
Our Master will call us away
To another dimension unknown to us
To live with Him one day.

Eternity awaits for us
But the gate’s not very wide
Only a few will get to pass through
To live on the other side.

Now is the time to know Jesus
We must turn away from our sin
Cause we haven’t made it to heaven yet
And Satan waits to take us in.
