What Will It Be

A little girl was walking with her father one night under the starry sky. Looking up, she said, "Father, I have been thinking that if the wrong side of Heaven is so beautiful, what will the right side be?"—Christian Endeavor World.


No disappointment in Heaven

There's no disappointment in Heaven,
No weariness, sorrow or pain;
No hearts that are bleeding and broken,
No song with a minor refrain.
The clouds of our earthly horizon
Will never appear in the sky,
For all will be sunshine and gladness,
With never a sob nor a sigh.

I'm bound for that beautiful city
My Lord has prepared for His own;
Where all the redeemed of all ages
Sing 'Glory' around the white throne.
Sometimes I grow homesick for Heaven
And the glories I there shall behold;
What a joy that will be when my Savior I see
In that beautiful city of gold.

We'll never pay rent for our mansion:
The taxes will never come due;
Our garments will never grow threadbare,
But always be fadeless and new.
We'll never be hungry nor thirsty
Nor languish in poverty there;
For all the rich bounties of Heaven
God's sanctified children shall share.

There'll never be crepe on the door-knob,
Nor funeral train in the sky;
No graves on the hillsides of glory,
For there we shall nevermore die.
The old will be young there forever,
Transformed in a moment of time;
Immortal, we'll stand in His likeness,
The stars and the sun to outshine.

(John 14. 2, 3; Rev. 22. 1-5)


There shall we see his face,
And never, never sin;
There from the rivers of his grace
Drink endless pleasures in.—Selected


Beautiful Zion, built above!
Beautiful city that I love!
Beautiful gates of pearly white!
Beautiful temple, God its light!

Beautiful trees, forever there!
Beautiful fruits they always bear!
Beautiful rivers gliding by!
Beautiful fountains never dry!

Beautiful light, without the sun!
Beautiful day revolving on!
Beautiful worlds on worlds untold!
Beautiful streets of shining gold!

Beautiful heaven where all is light!
Beautiful angels clothed in white!
Beautiful songs that never tire!
Beautiful harps through all the choir!

Beautiful  crowns on every brow!
Beautiful  palms the conquerors show!
Beautiful  robes the ransomed wear!
Beautiful  all who enter there!

Beautiful throne for God the Lamb!
Beautiful seats at God's right hand!
Beautiful rest, all wanderings cease!
Beautiful home of perfect peace!—George Gill


Here in the body pent,
Absent from Him I roam
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent
A day's march nearer home.—


There shall we see his face,
And never, never sin;
There from the rivers of his grace
Drink endless pleasures in.—Selected


You have seen a ship out on the bay, swinging with the tide, and seeming as if it would follow it, and yet it cannot, for down beneath the water it is anchored. So many a soul sways toward heaven, but cannot ascend thither because it is anchored to some secret sin.—Beecher


A little child was once asked where his home was, and answered with eyes full of love, "Where mother is." Our true home is where Jesus is. "That they may be with Me where I am," was His prayer for us.—Selected


There was once a man who thought he would puzzle Bishop Wilberforce by asking him, "What is the shortest way to Heaven?" "Oh! that is quite simple," said the Bishop, "just take the first turn to the right, and keep straight on."—Selected
