There's a place beyond the sparkling stars
Forbidden to our eyes
Beyond the scarlet sunset,
Beyond the endless skies.
A place we can't imagine,
Not even in our dreams.
Where everything is perfect
And always what it seems.
And those who wish to find it
Must walk the journey well
And offer hands to strangers
Who on their journey fell.
For we follow the road blindly
Not knowing how it ends,
Rising when we've fallen,
Ignoring twists and bends.
The ones that have arrived there
Now know they can't return
And yet they do not wish to
So take heed of this and learn:
That the trip becomes worthwhile
The trip we call our life
And for one glorious last reward:
We call this paradise.
Where His glory reigns forever,
And eternal peace is won
And all our worldly pleasures
Fade away in endless sun.
It lies beyond the moonlight,
Beyond the morning's perfumed air.
We both know and call it heaven.
And one day, I'll meet you there ~

I would like to thank Renee' for sponsoring Paul's memorial ~ Please visit her loved ones ~
