Gone to God … Gone to Glory

Gone to God … Gone to Glory
By Bernadette A. Sahm

glory

When I go to God
St. Peter gives a wink and a nod
When I get to Glory
They already know my story

At the pearly gates of heaven
I hope this is what I will hear
You did good your heart is pure
God is ready now be rest assured

When I go to God
I will have passed through this life
When I get to Glory
God knows no more strife

St Peter leads me to God’s grace
There are angels abound
Now we meet face to face
Calm cool and quiet, not a sound

Heavenly Father embraces me
Once again I am whole
The songs they are singing
Pierce my angel spirit soul

As I move forward, who do I see
To my right and to my left
All those before, that mattered most to me
God stands before us, He is our host

When I go to God
When I get to Glory
I won’t have to speak a word
God knows my story

The Lord is my light and my salvation
So why should I be afraid?

The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger
So why should I tremble? PSALM 27:1

When I go to God
When I get to Glory

The Ocean is Always Where I Left It

The Ocean is Always Where I Left It
By Bernadette A. SahmReho

Changing world, places lost
Friends in heaven, parents now gone
Businesses found to be enjoyed
Now leveled, replaced with new

Sun that shines, rain that minds
Fast one day, slow the next
The ocean is still
What I like best

Age can harden and hurt the soul
People and places they come and they go
Count on me, then you are gone
The ocean is a place, I always know

Tree’s we grow them, cut them back
Children raise them, don’t turn back
Count on me, you say you know
Count on me, promising not to go

What I’ve learned is all I have
My heart is steady
It is sincere, peaceful and ready
The ocean is always where I left it
