Together with Our Sacred Friend

I’ve been reading a devotional book by Randy Alcorn that features portions of sermons by the great Charles Spurgeon. The book is on heaven and it describes beautiful and profound aspects of heaven in a real and tangible way.

You may be like the Apostle Paul and yearn for that place, yet God has a plan for us here on planet earth. But one day….one day, we shall see as never before and experience a love so deep we cannot explain it. I pray this poem gives you comfort and encourages you in your view of heaven.

For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling. Romans 8:1-2

Together with Our Sacred Friend

All the saints shall see His face

And see in full His ancient grace

We’ll shed old idols and need for fame

Instead we’ll joy in His acclaim

Our hearts shall see as ne’r before 

And be so full but still want more

Our eyes will see His realms unknown

And sing His praise, in heavenly tone

We’ll see old friends and parents too

Whose hearts are now no longer blue

And when His love we fully grasp

His hand we’ll touch and ever clasp

Our joy and life shall ever be

So rich, so full as all the sea

When death and sorrow ‘er subside

We’ll join Him as His holy bride

We’ll sup with Him forever more

And dance along His endless shore 

Of love and beauty there is no end
