We’re on this side of heaven
But we won’t be here too long
Passing like a summer breeze
In the lyrics of a song.
T’will be over before we know it
The years are slipping away
The days of youth have passed us by
Now part of yesterday.
We do not know the hour in which
Our master will call us away
To another dimension unknown to us
To live with Him one day.
Eternity awaits for us
But the gates’ not very wide
Only a few, will get to pass through
To live on the other side.
Now is the time to know Jesus
We must turn away from our sin
'Cause we haven’t made it to heaven yet
And Satan waits to take us in.
"To be absent from the body, and
to be present with the Lord." ll Corinthians 5:8
