When my time comes, this life to disembark
towards the light and away from the dark.
As I set out on my promised journey
to that shore of no worry.
I'll know when I'm finally home,
at water's edge with lapping foam.
Knowing that Jesus has a place for me,
and it's Jesus I've come to see!
As my boat onto the gravel grates,
I'll look up to those pearly gates.
Knowing my arrival is almost complete,
and saints await to meet and greet.
"Remove your sandals", they will say,
and "Welcome, Follower-of-the Way."
My inner spirit will then rejoice,
that is, if, or when, I find my voice!
