When you cross that river Jordan,
When you enter the Promised Land
You’ll find peace that passes understanding
You’ll find rest in the Father’s hands.
Do not tarry when you cross that river,
Do not wait for me to reach that distant shore,
Someday I’ll follow your path down to the river,
Then I’ll be with you forevermore.
When Jesus calls your footsteps homeward
Rest assured I’ll not be far behind
So keep your eyes upon the gates of glory
And keep your heart full and love you will find.
Here is my own poem I wrote to help my heart too:
She's in the arms of Jesus,
Laughing, singing, praising.
Her legs are walking,
With muscles quite strong,
Her hands, I'm sure, she's raising.
Our God knows what He's doing,
Though earthly wisdom flees.
Her short life had a purpose,
Of that we can be sure.
God sent this angel for a reason,
Her mother's words ring clear.
Comfort our hearts, oh Lord, we pray,
As we remember her face so dear.
Dear Jesus, please help this family who needs You to hold them close. Surround them with your love and make Yourself real to them. Comfort their hurting hearts and let them see the sunshine through the clouds. In Your precious Name, Amen.
