Who lived as they were told,
He’ll save from all oppression,
From grief, from hurt, from cold.
From all troubles surrounding us,
Burdens that weigh us down.
When we go to be with Jesus,
Like a fawn, we’ll freely bound.
From darkness into light we’ll go,
Minds innocent and clear.
No more evil will we know,
Safe from all of fear.
From all of death, from lies, from hate,
Far away from harm.
When Christ comes, we won’t have to wait.
He’ll hold us in His arms.
We’ll live with Christ in perfect peace,
Consumed in heaven’s light.
All those considered low and least
Will be the greatest in God’s sight.
-- C.V., girl, age 14

Now I'd like to ask a very important question.
Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
