Beyond the Rainbow's End
At my rainbow's end, there is no pot of gold,
but something more magnificent to behold.
There won't be, as some think, beyond that last breath,
just a burial plot for my home after death.
We've more than a body; each one has a soul
that can't be interred in a six-foot-deep hole.
My conscious and undying soul will then be
with Jesus, who saved me and set my soul free.
I'll have a new, glorified body up there,
sweet peace in a lovely place beyond compare,
prepared just for me as my promised reward
for trusting God's only Son, Jesus, as Lord.
Right now we can’t grasp the full reality
of life after death, souls, and eternity;.
but all-knowing God gives us what we need now--
His Spirit and His Holy Word that tells how
to follow His plan and how Heaven can be
the home of our souls after death sets them free.
Beyond my last rainbow, a home waits for me
in Heaven. God’s glory at last I will see.
