You make your heart an offering

And prepare yourself for me

Leaving everything behind

To enter my eternity

In joy,

In peace,

Let love


Forsaking all except the very best

Until I come to bring you to my rest

Be true,

Be pure,

In love


For all things work together for the good

For all who truly love the one they should

I made your heart

So it would beat along with mine

I made your eyes

I made your ears

I made your mind

I know you are incomplete apart from me

But you will join me in eternity

(And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will

come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

John 14:3)
