ORIGINAL POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER©
When death approaches our front door, it seems a dreadful thought,
But just imagine what’s in store. With Angels we’ll be brought.
The gates of heaven opened wide, the throne of God we’ll see.
Our Savior at the Father’s side, a room for you and me.
Our bonds are freed – the chains are gone. The ransom has been paid.
No hopeless tears – a brand new dawn – no more to be dismayed.
A paradise awaits us beyond this murky life.
No pain or sorrow will there be – a perfect holy life.
So set your eyes on Jesus. Don’t ever let Him go.
He is our own Redeemer. His blood for us did flow.
I love you, dear Lord, Jesus. You’re all in all to me,
and when death comes I’ll tremble not, for you have died for me.
