That Other Land

A second journey take us to that other land–
or is it less?

A second journey take us to that other land–
or is it less?
When-In the twinkling of an eye-we are
so blessed
For Heaven’s gates are opened wide-and we are
at our Savior's side
To worship at His feet-unending joy-oh bliss
complete!

But we still labour on-‘tis others crossed the
lower shore
the ‘much-loved ones’ gone before
And from these very distant places
we see no more their much loved faces

But bitter knowledge-oh the sorrow-
that many shall not hail that morrow
For when the cry is “Life no more”
They step upon ANOTHER SHORE!
How fatal when life’s thread is ended -
Your work on earth is sadly rendered
And destiny can go no more -
that sends you to “another shore.”
