In Christ, death is only a near death experience.
An optical illusion- what can death do to me?
Can it rob my joy? Or bereave my parents?
Do not, like the world, grieve for me, or for our brethren.
None like Him can satisfy wrath for redemption
and none like Him can satisfy us as our portion!
It will be the saints everlasting joy to actually see HIM.
Oh that He would rend the heavens that we meet HIM!
