A Christian Counselor

Because I live, ye shall live also. John 14:19

The Promised Life

When you do hear that I'm gone
And left this troubled world below
Don't you believe that I'm dead
Although the evidence will show

I'll be alive more than before
while my earthly vessel will decay
I will be on top of everything
Being far from dead in any way
While others may mourn and cry
Don't you be sad, but rejoice
I'll be promoted by God Himself
For I've responded to His voice

I may leave some of you behind
As I'll take orders from the King
Forever I'll be in His company
Rejoicing, while Hallelujahs I'll sing
I won't be dead, or cold as stone
For I will live for evermore
Death has lost its painful sting
Therefore, I'll continue to soar

My last enemy I'll overcome
As I depart from this globe
When entering everlasting bliss
God will hand me a brand new robe
No, I won't be dead, dear friend
For He that has the Son hath life
The grave is just a stepping stone
Which puts an end to earthly strife

When you read my name, somewhere
On a long list of the dead
Remember, God keeps His promise
And gives LIFE for death instead
For anyone whom upon Jesus calls
And accepts Him as Savior and Lord
Will never see death, neither decay
But LIFE, according to His word
