Perfect Place

Heaven. 
So fabled...so desired...so far beyond any adjectives the poet possesses! 
A place so very beautiful-
though never I have seen;
He blesses us with glimpses there
so perfect and serene.

A place so very wonderful
beyond all pain and strife;
beyond all any suffering
we'll spend eternal life!

A place so very glorious-
the very Presence of
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
and Father God of love!

Heaven--o so far beyond
the trove of words availed.
So very high above the peaks
that man has ever scaled!
Much deeper than the love we know
in this decaying place.
O Heaven, perfect Paradise
provided by God's grace!

"Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!  No matter how beautiful Heaven is, the most glorious and desirable part of it is being in Your physical Presence! 
Lord, we long for Your return!"
Amen!
