their burdens, their griefs, their woes!
Soon, very soon, the saints of the earth—shall be saints in heaven!
Their hairs of 'snowy old age'—shall be crowned with
perpetual joy and everlasting youth!
Their eyes bathed with
tears—shall be made as bright as stars, never to be clouded again by
Their hearts that now
tremble—are to be made joyous and strong, and set forever like pillars
in the temple of God.
Their follies, their burdens, their griefs, their woes—are
soon to be over! Sin is to be forever slain, corruption is to be forever removed—and
a heaven of spotless purity and of unmingled peace is to be theirs
"For God has reserved a priceless inheritance for His children. It is
kept in heaven for you—pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change
and decay!" 1 Peter 1:4
