The Revelation

"I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse…" Revelation 19:11 I’ve talked to many a good man facing his own end And pretty much they all wonder about the same thing Will passing thru that final gate put an end to things we love Will we all hang up our cowboy rigging when we see the dove. And, well I’ve begun to wonder when I’m called before the throne And stand and face my deeds on earth and do my best to atone As I stand there in Stetson hat and rusty, bent spurs Will I be bunched with the righteous or will I be corralled with the curs. But, then I’m a wondering, what about my way of life? Will I still be a cowboy, will my way be filled with strife? Will I have to sell my saddle? Will I give up my puncher ways? If I can’t cowboy, how will I fill up my heavenly days? But, then I remember reading in Revelation, chapter 19, eleventh verse And my heart is filled with happiness, ain’t no reason now to curse. Cuz the good book tell us all, we’ll be cowboying up in paradise Riding herd for the real King Ranch, punching cows and doing right. Cus it’s written in the Bible, you all can now stay the course “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse” So, I’ll grab my old saddle and swing it up on that critter's back And ride that heavenly range forever, me, that white horse and my old kack.
