I go to prepare a place


Jn14.2

John 14:1–3 (ESV) “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

 

A place He is preparing

That I might dwell with Him

Crafted by Divinity

All light – no corner dim

 

And all this time in Heaven

God’s genius, love and craft

Impossibly imagined

His hand brings all to pass

 

What one deserves such wonders?

NOT ONE – ’tis all of grace

That we the sons of Adam

May look upon His face

 

To revel in His beauty

‘Tis Heaven’s glad employ

Unending treasure plundered

In unending waves of joy

 

No pain, no sorrow enter

No tears – but those in praise

No mourning, death or darkness

No grief in all this place

 

Abundance, glory, beauty

All wonder, awe and love

Sweetness, grace and blessing

In Christ’s own home above

 

The fullness of the Spirit

The Father’s smiling face

The Son in risen glory

The felt Triune embrace

 

No sin, no sin, no sin there

No sin without, within

Redemption’s plan full wrought out

In Christ, all summed in Him

 

And there with Him forever

In sweet, familial bliss

We’ll bless the Lamb who bought us

Whose love has fashioned this
