Posts Tagged ‘THEY’RE GATHERING’

There’s a crowd gathering on another shore,

The group’s grower larger every day.

They are gathering in from all directions,

Yet all came there, BY God’s Narrow Way.

2

This crowd has skins of different shades,

Speak languages to each other quite unknown,

But they are connected by one Royal Blood,

Ah, Christ firmly owns them for His own.

3

The crowd landed where they planned to land.

They found their long-sought heavenly goal.

They weathered all life’s threatening storms,

Insisting on “saving” (at all cost) their soul.

4

Soon, Friend, you may be gathered with them,

Soon I may join the celestial number,

Where the Son is the light for all the day,

(And where we’ll need no night for slumber.)

5

Let us then be Faithful with a capitol “F,”

To the Lord who rules that group, that shore,

And gather with the enumerable saints young and old.

Gather to Christ, and gather to part nevermore.
