Eternity


I praise the One who forgave my debt,
For my future needs He already met.
Once and for all upon a Mount,
Love poured forth like a fount.
One life for the world was the cost,
And so a Shepherd came for the lost.
When He said 'It is finished.',
Love for the world soon diminished.
The path is set before me,
As far as I can see.
Blood paid the tolls I cross for free,
To pave the way to eternity.
I cannot wait 'til that day,
When I hear Him say,
'Faithful servant welcome home.'
I will realize I was never alone.
And weeping in my Father's embrace,
I'll finally see my Saviors face.
