The Mansion of Heaven

 

This world, however beautiful, was never meant to be
The place that we would call our home for all eternity.
And thought we would not choose to leave, a loving God knows best,
And in His time He lifts us to a place of peace and rest.

 For He has built a mansion where His children will abide
Free from pain and sorrow, forever at His side.
He said He’d never leave us to face our trials alone,
And though sometimes we fail Him, He never fails His own.

 And even when our choices are less than He would ask,
He knows when human courage is unequal to the task.
We cannot judge what happens, though tears and questions start,
We only see what’s visible – God sees into the heart…

 And though there may be many things that we cannot explain,
We can be sure it breaks His heart to see His children’s pain.
In loving arms He bears us to a quiet place apart
Where He mends the wounded spirit and heals the broken heart.

 And though these ones we love so much have left our present sight
And passed into a better world of majesty and light,
Someday we’ll be together in our Father’s home above
Where we’ll thank Him for His mercy and praise Him for His love.
