If You Could See Where I Have Gone

Author Unknown

waterIf you could see where I have gone the beauty of this place. And how it feels to know you're home to see the Savior's face. To wake in peace and know no fear, just joy beyond compare. While still on earth you miss me yet You wouldn't want me there if you could see where I have gone had made the trip with me. You'd know I didn't go alone the Savior came with me. When I awoke He was by my side and reached out His hand Said, "Hurry, child, you're going home, to a grand & glorious land. Don't worry over those you love, for I'm not just with you. And don't you know with you at home, they'll long to be here, too? "If you could see where I have gone, and see what I've been shown. You'd never know another terror ever feel alone. You'd marvel at the care of God. His hand on every life; and realize He really cares, and bears with us each strife; and that He weeps when one is lost. His heart is filled with pain. But, oh, the joy when one comes home, a child at home again. If you could see where I have gone could stay awhile with me; could share the things that God has made to grace eternity. But, no, you could never leave. Once heaven's joys you'd known. You couldn't bear to walk earth's paths again. Once heaven was your home. If you could see where I have gone. You'd know we'll meet someday. And though I'm parted from you now, that I am just away. So thank you, family - thank you friends for living for the Lord, for teaching me to love Him, to trust Him and His Word. And now that I'm at home with Him, Secure in every way, I'm waiting here at heaven's door--to greet you some sweet day.
