Welcoming us in Heaven

editorial image

When feeling tired and so much older,

And the past so very far away,

We’re as near to heaven as 10 is to 11,

Every time we take a seat and pray.

They’ll say they’ll have a banquet waiting for us,

All the angels there will sing in chorus.

We’ll meet the folk who got there long before us,

And wish them, every one, a lovely day.

PS: We get to heaven, not because we’re good enough, but because God is good enough.
