Inheritance

I Peter 1:4-9

The sufferings of this present time
      Are not to be compared
To the inheritance sublime
      Our Father has prepared.

Without corruption, undefiled,
      It “fadeth not away,”
Reserved in heaven for every child
      Who keeps the narrow way.

Rejoice, for though the present hour
      Is filled with many a trial,
The One who keeps you by His power
      Will make it all worthwhile.

And when the One we love appears
      Whom now we cannot see,
The faith that stands the trial of years
      Will end in victory.
