A Happy Celebration
Even though this world is in turmoil and pain,
The true child of God has everything to gain.
The Father said, in this world ye shall tribulation,
but soon we will have a happy celebration.
In Him we can have comfort, joy, and peace,
His great love for us will never cease.
Fight the good fight and run in this race,
We are kept strong by the Father's saving Grace.
Many are weak, their battle worn and weary,
but it's no time for the saints of God to be dreary.
We knew this day was drawing near,
but the Word of God said not to fear.
We must keep the faith and hold our heads high,
The one we're looking for will appear in the sky.
He's coming for those who look for Him,
we must stay alert and keep our lamps trimmed.
While we are waiting for Jesus to come back,
don't mess around and get on the wrong track.
Satan is busy he's after your soul,
always remember that heavens your goal.
Who said it was easy to follow the Lord's way,
It will be worth it all to hear Him say,
enter thou into the Joys of the Lord,
I've prepared a place for you, now we're all together in one accord.
