There are some I have known
Who will never grow old,
But shall stay delightfully youthful
With tenderness untold.
Life shall never hurt them
With heartache or with tears,
For they are kept perpetually guarded
From living on for years.
Eyes to shine in endless brightness
Hair to keep that golden glow,
Velvet cheeks, soft as the dew
No wrinkles will they ever know.
Each day will be filled with laughter
Where delight can never cease,
To know only sweetest kindness
True love and joy and peace.
The Son will continually shine for them
And bright stars will never fall,
Held for all time in delightful wonder
Where fireworks enthrall.
Some of them gave all their life
In giving of their all,
Others are gently carried away
Just in answer to their call.
But they are the very blessed
To be kept forever pure,
For how wondrous is the love
Where they always now endure.
Because they are so safe
Yet preserved constantly in my heart,
May I let them fly and set them free
Into their perfection above.
Oh Lord Jesus, as I weep,
Until I see their face
Please hold me in Your love.
