Title: "Thoughts In Verse"
By George A. Wiens

WHEN MY DAYS ON EARTH ARE OVER


WHEN MY DAYS ON EARTH ARE OVER,
THEN MY LIFE HAS JUST BEGUN,
FOR THEN I KNOW I'M GOING
WHERE THERE'S NO SETTING SUN.

I'LL LIVE WITH CHRIST FOREVER
UP IN THAT GLORIOUS LAND.
I'LL SING AND PLAY GOD'S PRAISES
WHEN I PLAY IN HEAVEN'S BAND.

A HOME OF UTMOST BEAUTY,
BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS,
IS AWAITING ME IN HEAVEN,
WHERE GOD'S LIVING WATER STREAMS.

THERE WILL BE JOY AND GLADNESS,
NO HOURS, DAYS, OR YEARS,
FOR TIME WILL THERE BE ENDLESS,
WITH NO SORROWS AND NO TEARS.

HOW CAN I KNOW FOR CERTAIN
THAT I AM HEAVEN BOUND,
AND THAT I'M NOT JUST HEADING
FOR A HOLE DUG IN THE GROUND.

THE BIBLE TELLS BE CLEARLY
THAT THE PRICE HAS ALL BEEN PAID.
IT WAS PAID BY CHRIST ON CALVARY,
AS MY SINS ON HIM WERE LAID.

GOD'S OFFER IS STILL OPEN.
YOU TOO CAN KNOW FOR SURE
THAT YOU ARE BOUND FOR HEAVEN,
IF YOUR HEART HAS BEEN MADE PURE.

THE ANSWER IS SO SIMPLE.
GOD OFFERS IT WITH LOVE.
JUST ASK FOR HIS FORGIVNESS,
AND GUIDANCE FRO ABOVE.
