What's Heaven Like?

What's Heaven Like?


Once more God’s Son will come to earth

In clouds destined above

In the glorious glow of new birth

We’ll rise by grace in love


What visions will there be up there?

What wonders will we see?

What treasures has The Lord to share?

For those His blood set free


What victories will our faith have won?

What welcome will we meet?

Has work in Heaven to be done?

What food is there to eat?


What songs in Heaven will we sing?

Will God reveal His face?

Will we like angels take to wing?

And fly from place to place


Will praying cease on bended knees?

When God is by our side

Will we come and go as we please?

Or in one place abide?


With bodies free of sin and shame

With heart and soul pure white

Will man be clothed in living flame?

And shine as perfect light


Will death change us to living stone?

Will home be in the sky?

Will we sit like kings upon a throne?

And reign with Christ on high?


No ear has heard no eye has seen

No heart has yet conceived

What God’s reserved for Jesus’ queen

Who trust The Father’s Seed.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
