Now, go your way and eat your bread with joy,
And likewise drink your wine with merry heart!
Such words we’d love to hear and thus enjoy
When we approach the gates of Heaven’s start!
Then after such a long and weary life,
To hear that God’s accepted now our works,
No mortal aches and pains, no longer strife,
Eternal rest in Heaven with its perks!
O let me hear those words when I am gone
Away from all these trials and tragedies!
The Savior’s arm around my shoulders drawn
And said with such a love I’m now at ease!
Now, go your way, and eat and drink in bliss,
Well done, my faithful servant, grace is this!
Go thy way,
eat thy bread with joy,
and drink thy wine with a merry heart;
for God now accepteth thy works.
Ecclesiastes 9:7 KJV
