A Land So Fair - Poem by Patricia Grantham

A land that's overflowing with milk and honey
No need for food, clothing, goods or money
Neither sickness, sorrow, death nor pain
Nor shelter from the storm not even the rain

The cities are paved with streets of pure gold
Rivers of waters flowing with riches untold
There will be no sun to shine ever so bright
Stars that used to twinkle on a starry night

Angels will sing songs so glorious and gay
There voices can be heard all night and day
A trip that's eternal never more to return
Where you'll live forever no more to yearn

Traveling to a land that is ever so fair
Where the Heavenly Father will meet you there
A place where life will never have to end
The journey is over a new life to begin

    this is the beauties of heaven, high above the ground, where there is peace and love, and no sickness to be found
    where the words ' brother and sister and feelings are truly shown, and the love for one another is all that is known. (Report) Reply
