On the shoreline of Eternity ~
There by the Crystal Sea;
Hope waits arrayed in brilliance
Always beckoning to me.
If you listen you can hear her song
Encouraging all to come;
It speaks of strongest faith and love,
A perfect life is done.
She tells us when we think not
Her ways will still be true;
While we are conquered in cocoons ~
She waits for me and you.
One day the inner man grows strong,
He splits the threads which hold,
A Spirit sings its freedom
Whether young or very old.
At last we break free from the shell ~
At last our wings are seen!
At last we can be all that our Creator
Meant for us to be!
No worldly weights ~ no hindrances ~
No hanging back allowed;
But only just believe His Word ~
We see it clearly now!
And Hope is satisfied to know
Her destiny is done,
When we walk by and enter in ~
Won by Precious One!
