'Because I Know You're There'


Many tears cover my eyes,
For many burdens I bear.
But, there's a place where I will never cry,
Because I know you are there.
I'm wanting to fly away,
To a place where earth can't compare.
It's a new and better day,
Because I know you are there.
Jesus is who I want to see.
He's the one who always cares,
But even happier he must be!
Because I know you are there.
Yes this place is blue and torn,
Cruel and unfair.
But I will never mourn,
Because I know you are there.
I'll live there forever.
The crown I will wear.
But heaven's a whole lot better,
Because I know you are there.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
