There Will Come a Time

There Will Come a Time…


There will come a time…

 I shall cease to be.

One day, my heavenly father will be calling me!


There will come a time… 

This home will be mine no more!

For one day soon, I’ll arrive

 at “heaven’s shore.”


There will come a time…  

My body will be “trading places>”

I shall be up yonder... 

With “angelic faces.”


There will come a time… 

I’ll not have to ponder.

When the roll of heaven is

“called up yander!”


There will come a time…

 My life will surely be blessed.

As I hear my savior’s call;

 “enter into heaven’s rest!”


This time I speak of will happen soon.

I’ll be in a heavenly mansion’s room!


How much time you have left... 

However you may live…

Won’t you come to Jesus? 

He’s so wiling to forgive!


HE offers life eternal...  And has YOU

 and ME in mind!

This is the day of salvation! 

Now is the accepted time!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
