Dear Christian,

Don’t fear death. It’s simply a door that ushers us into a reality that is beyond our wildest imagination. In a moment, we leave this world with all its troubles and pain and are present with our Lord and Savior. What glory!

Please cut me some slack, I’m not a poet in the slightest. I was struck with this idea last night and it kinda rushed itself onto the paper. When I think of death, I want to think about it like this. I don’t want to be afraid. What is there to be afraid of for the Christian? Not a thing my friend. I hope this collection of thoughts gives you the hope and peace that comes with Salvation. I titled it, “When At Last I See Clearly.” Look to Christ, He is waiting for us on the other side of the door.

When at last I see clearly

And my breath is all but spent

I will hope in Your provision

The grace that has been sent

When doubt or pain speak softly

And cause my heart to fear

I’ll remember who has bought me

And who’s hands hold me near


When at last I see clearly

And all my pain is gone

When I’m rushed into your kingdom

The night will turn to dawn

When I see the streets of gold

Oh the lights, the smells, the sights

There will be no more darkness

No more fear, pain, or nights


When at last I see clearly

And I find those gone before

We will sing and shout for joy

And laugh forever more

As we stand hand in hand

What a love we will share

Praising Him that saved us

And gave His robes to wear


When at last I see clearly

And my Savior’s face I see

I’ll fall down at His feet

What a moment that will be

When all my hope is realized

And all I know is Christ

I’ll see the one who loved me

And paid my rightful price


When at last I see clearly

And my Savior lifts my head

I’ll see hands that took the nails

And withstood them in my stead

I’ll see the eyes of Jesus

What love, oh can it be

I know this and this assured

My Savior died for me


When at last I see clearly

And Your labor in me is done

I’ll stand a work completed

And glory in the Son

What joy shall fill my heart

As I begin my life anew

I’ll sing with Heaven’s angels

All praise be unto You


When at last I see clearly

There in that Heavenly place

Your glory is all I’ll see

The glory of Your face

You gave me life and it's this I'll sing

For all eternity

I’ll rest in You forever

My Jesus, my Savior, my King

When at last I see clearly...
