Redeemed man will soon take his sole, soul flight,

To marvelous heaven, that’s out of sight,

Where there is constant day – never a night,

Because Christ Himself, is its regal Light.

 

Want to go to the heaven beyond the blue?

You can go, it was made for you, and you.

Souls from every tribe, and tongue, old and new,

Men from continents and all the isles too,

 

May be freed from sin in Jesus’ Blood’s might,

Turn from all wrong, turned to always do right,

Never again to curse, lie, kill or fight.

God also wants to remove carnal blight.

 

Interested, but your haven’t a clue.

Read the Bible. It will show the way through.

          – eab,9/8/09

God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

Refrain

But God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.

2. God hath not promised we shall not know
Toil and temptation, trouble and woe;
He hath not told us we shall not bear
Many a burden, many a care.

3. God hath not promised smooth roads and wide,
Swift, easy travel, needing no guide;
Never a mountain rocky and steep,
Never a river turbid and deep.

Annie Johnson Flint died this date, 9/8/1932, at Clifton Springs, New York.  She was the daughter of Mr. Eldon Johnson but it seems that she was adopted by a family named Flint while small.  Annie attended school in Trenton(Jersey) and became a teacher.  Later, due to severe arthritis (making her immobile), she traded teaching for writing poetry.  Her material appeared in magazines and books.  The above is a lesser known hymn than her “He Giveth More Grace.”  Miss Johnson was born 12/24/1866 at Vineland, New Jersey.
