eternity’s hues

tell me what color eternity is, and that is what color I’ll wear –  dressed in the garments of hope and of joy, to wish you much happiness there.

tell me what color eternity is, for someday I’m going there too.  perhaps it is white or is green or is blue, and soon I shall spend it with you.

Tell me what color eternity is, that I may come dressed for my Lord, clothed in His righteousness alone, washed by the blood He poured

upon the world to buy our souls, to redeem us for His own; that at our dawn of eternity, we each shall have a home.

tell me what color eternity is, and we will sing gladly for you.  dressed in the colors of peace and of light, each wearing eternity’s hue.

Yes, tell me what color eternity is and that is what color I’ll wear.  tell me about the joy overflowing, that through suffering I may prepare.

And so I will dress in eternity’s hues, each day till I see you again; for they will remind me of what is to come, when we will eternity spend.

“For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.”  (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

sincerely,      Grace Day
