On This Side Of Darkness

On this side of darkness there are all good things There is dancing, rejoicing - we laugh and we sing On this side of darkness you have lots of friends No sadness, depression or heartbreaking ends On this side of darkness you enjoy great sights The beauty of Heaven always shining so bright Sweet sounds of canaries and birds fill the air There is nothing to harm you, there is no despair On this side of darkness we have lots of fun The children are happy; we play in the Son On this side of darkness there is no more pain You share in the blessing of soft, healing rain On this side of darkness your needs have been met There is plenty for all and no need to fret On this side of darkness there is peace all around We know how to share; and love does abound No stealing, no killing, no tearing apart No sickness, no terror, only joy fills your heart No crying, no sorrow, even death has fled On this side of darkness - no tears left to shed This is not meant for all. Only those who believe Through repentance with Faith, this Kingdom we receive What a blessing to walk in love with our King In His beautiful Garden; it makes my heart sing There is no sacrifice that I will not give For the privilege to know that Through Eternity we will live Written: January 21, 2015 By: Neva Romaine
