Above the Bright Blue Sky - Poem by Albert Midlane

There's a Friend for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
A Friend who never changes
Whose love will never die;
Our earthly friends may fail us,
And change with changing years,
This Friend is always worthy
Of that dear name he bears.

There's a home for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
Where Jesus reigns in glory,
A home of peace and joy;
No home on earth is like it,
Nor can with it compare;
And everyone is happy,
Nor could be happier there.

    'Our earthly friends may fail us' but the one who is sitting above the blue sky will always be there to support us children. Albert Midlane, wherever he is, be blessed with His divine bliss.
    A home of peace and joy / And everyone is happy / No home on earth is like it,

    A lovely poem by Mr. Midlane. However, is that the only one he ever wrote? I can't believe that. Why does PH not have more of his poems? (Report) Reply

    The house for all is the final destination it could be any of the H if you do good and follow the path of the guidance then victory is yours and if you deny and do bad and fight, create difference, make this earth a battle field then again you will be in H so choice is ours. (Report) Reply
