Some random thing brings forth soft memory
Of someone dear who’s left these mortal years,
And how I long to hold them close to me!
The thought of our reunion brings fresh tears.
Imagine all the joy that day will bring:
Such overflowing love, such tender sighs!
I scarce can wait, my heart so aches to sing,
To gaze upon their face, into their eyes.
Then how much more will be that golden day
When I at last meet Jesus Christ my Lord!
The sacrifice, His life He had to pay;
Now here He is! How great is this reward!
With loved ones near, no longer to be grieved
Because He died for me, and I believed!
