When Time No More Will Be


Due to a disappointing 'drop' I am back to using the phone camera for now...

Another day of grace
Rolls from dawn’s eastward shore
To each and every one of us
Till time will be no more

Till time will be no more
Not one of us can tell
When we will pass through Death’s dark door
Into Heaven or hell

Into Heaven or hell
There is no in between
Therefore, we ought to ponder well
What none on earth have seen

What none on earth have seen
Will fill eternity
How sacred is time’s go-between
God and humanity

God and humanity
Are never far apart
He grants each day of grace to we,
The darlings of his heart

The darlings of His heart
When Time No More will be
Will witness He who hangs His art
Where everyone can see

Where everyone can see
His sky-wide evidence
That the heaven's declare, so we
Cannot plead ignorance

After writing this I read this

Though you have not seen him, you love him; 
and even though you do not see him now, 
you believe in him.

1 Peter 1:3-9
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 
In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope
 through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 
 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. 
This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 
who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation
 that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 
 In all this you greatly rejoice, 
though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 
 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—
of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—
may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 
 Though you have not seen him, you love him; 
and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him 
and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 
 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, 
the salvation of your souls.
