The Good News

Poem by: Jim Henley

The Best Indeed, Is Yet To Come
The lord has blessed me all my days, and kept me in his palm
Though storms of life have come my way, their fearsome winds He’s calmed
When others threw their fiery darts, to cause my feet to stray
He gently took my hand in his, and kept me in the way
Yes Life down here is sweet indeed, with blessings He’s bestowed
And should I live a hundred years, and watch new things unfold
This world with all it’s wonders, all of it’s glitter, gleam and gloss
Could never pay the price he paid upon that old rugged cross
With empty hands I came to Him, Un-worthy of his love
He wrapped me in His righteousness, and wrote my name above
And now I owe my all to Him, though little it may be
Upon that cross he gave His all, then gave it all to me
And one day when they lay me down, and I take that final flight
On wings of love He’ll take me home, where never comes a night
So lift your head dear child of God, Your life has just begun
And know for sure without a doubt, The Best Is Yet To Come!
