Almost Here!

Michael Beck

The day will come, when light of Son, will shine forevermore
When men will rest, on earth so blessed, with all God has in store
A million years, without the tears, that streak our faces now
Will wipe away, these heavy days, when hearts in trouble bow
Deep hurtful past, removed at last, will neither haunt nor hound
When memories wane, of deepest pain, when only joy is found

So weep today, if flies your way, an arrow tipped with woe
Which surely will, make sweeter still, a never ending flow
Of purest bliss, and happiness, when heaven comes to earth
Where not a tear, and not a fear, will interrupt your mirth
Till morning light, brave darkest night, which soon will have an end
It’s almost here! Be of good cheer! It’s just around the bend!
