84. Until then

  1. My heart can sing when I pause to remember

    A heartache here is but a stepping stone

    Along a trail that's winding always upwards.

    This troubled world is not my final home.

    But until then my heart will go on singing,

    Until then, with joy I'll carry on,

    Until the day my eyes behold the City,

    Until the day God calls me home.

  2. The things of earth will dim and lose their value—

    If we recall they're borrowed for awhile—

    And things of earth that cause the heart to tremble,

    Remembered there will only bring a smile.

  3. This weary world, with all its toil and struggle—

    May take its toll of misery and strife—

    The soul of man is like a waiting falcon,

    When it's released, it's destined for the skies.

Something wrong? Let me know.
