Heavenly Praise

 I was sitting just inside the gates of heaven
 I arrived just yesterday and saw His face
 My Savior stood before me in His glory
 I bowed down to the ground and then I said
  
 You alone deserve my praise, Oh Lord
 You alone will I honor and adore
 I lift my voice to you
 It is all that I can do
 As I humbly bow before your throne
  
 He lifted up my head and led me onward
 I saw all the saints of old up ahead
 It was strange how I knew them in an instant
 As I walked along this is what they said
  
 You alone deserve my praise, Oh Lord
 You alone will I honor and adore
 I lift my voice to you
 It is all that I can do
 As I humbly bow before your throne
  
 He led me to a table spread before us
 The marriage feast the Lamb had made for me
 I sat down at the table with the others
 Then these words we all began to speak
  
 You alone deserve my praise, Oh Lord
 You alone will I honor and adore
 I lift my voice to you
 It is all that I can do
 As I humbly bow before your throne
  
 Then the Lamb entered the room in royal splendor
 He sat down and said let the feast begin
 I stood up to my feet and started singing
 To the Lamb who gave me life again
  
 You alone deserve my praise, Oh Lord
 You alone will I honor and adore
 I lift my voice to you
 It is all that I can do
 As I humbly bow before your throne

When That Day Arrives

 One day all the saints will look skyward
 The thunder will roll through the air
 A trumpet will sound
 Great hope will abound
 As they know Jesus soon will be there
  
 The lost will be trembling in fear
 At the noise that the heavens will make
 They won’t know the times
 Or even know why
 The saints are all praising His name
  
 Then we will rise to the sky
 As Jesus appears in the clouds
 What a day that will be
 When His face we’ll see
 The angels will shout His applause
  
 The lost will stay here on this earth
 As chaos erupts everywhere
 So many have left
 Planes and cars are all wrecked
 Those remaining on earth are all scared
  
 The saints sit and feast at His table
 The go to their mansions of gold
 Then every day
 They sing out their praise
 And the worship will never grow old
  
 The lost are in mass confusion
 Then someone points out the truth
 The rapture has come
 Those with faith in the Son
 Are now gone just as they always knew
  
 I tell you this story today
 So that you will be ready to go
 When that day arrives
 You will only survive
 Only if Jesus you know
  
 Not just that He was a teacher
 Or a prophet, or holy, or wise
 But that He is the one
 Who died for your sins
 And top Him you must be reconciled
  
 Come to the altar today
 Come and repent and be saved
 Accept Jesus Christ
 That he lived and He died
 Then arose to bring eternal life 

I’ll Pass

One day I’ll pass from this earth
My friends will see me no more
Don’t weep for me
Because Jesus I’ll see
When I reach heavens shore

There will be a great celebration 
When I pass through those pearly gates 
For when I arrive 
I’ll look in His eyes
I’ll stand there amazed by His grace

He loved me when I did not know Him
He took all my sins away
Then He rose from the grave
Guaranteeing my place
In the mansion that He would make

I ask you this day to give thanks
To my Savior and my Lord
He made the way
For you to be saved
 On this day let him be adored
