My Father's House - Poem by Wayne Bowen

When we leave this world behind us
we'll never have a care,
in a place we call heaven
we'll meet our Savior there.

We will know Him by His kindness
and because He loves us so
we'll follow where He leads us
no matter where He goes.

When we stand before our
Savior on our judgement day,
we will meet Him face to face
and this is what He'll say.

'You read My word, listened to Me
and believed what I had to say,
I'll meet you at My Father's house
where you can stay one day.'

We'll see Him in His glory
and look Him in the face
we can really get to know Him
and thank Him for His grace.

We can touch His body
and see Him every day
We can walk along beside Him
and hear Him softly say,

'Read My word, listen to Me
and believe what I have to say,
I will take you to My Father's house
where you can always stay.'

I've tried to live my life for Him
but sometimes all in vain,
when sin would come and use me up
and toss me back in shame.
He would come and lift me up
to bring me back once more,
then He would say, 'Just listen to Me,
I 'm standing at your door.''
He was always right beside me
even when I strayed, and He'll meet me
at His Father's house where I can always stay.

When He comes and takes me over
to the promised land,
I'd like to ask this question
when He leads me by the hand.
' I read your word, Iistened to You
and believed what You had to say
can You take me to Your Father's house
that's where I want to stay? .'

He can look me in the face
and I know what He will say,
'You read My word, you kept your faith
and then you believed in Me
now you can stay in My Father's house for all eternity.'

Now I can walk beside Him
for all eternity and remember the words
so precious that He use to say to me.....
