Always With Him

“When everything is ready, 

I will come and get you, so that you will always 

be with me where I am” (John 14:3).


Always, Lord?

I cannot imagine such joy.

You’re always with me now, but then…


Oh, glorious truth,

I will be always with You

In the home You’ve prepared for me,


Residence

Of grace, dwelling of love,

Place of Your resplendent presence.


You give

Not as the world, with 

Strings attached, demands intertwined,


But freely

Out of the abundance

Belonging to our Sovereign Lord.


So we rest

In this hope of glory,

This future, which came at great price.


Paid in full,

By the blood of the Lamb,

Our Lord of glory and God of all grace.


And so we

Remember the cross, 

Reflect on the cost, and worship our Lord.
