SWEET RELEASE. V. TERRY


Someday we'll bow in humble adoration
at our lovely savior's feet;
And all we'll hear is joyful praises
when our loved ones we will meet.

Now we're striving toward the prize
that He purchased for us all -
Walking daily in His footsteps
Listening always for His call.

Heartaches here are but a moment
for we are here on proving ground.
Soon will start the timeless ages,
where love and happiness abound.

There's a tugging of the spirit
Waiting for its sweet release;
Longing for Him, who redeemed us;
Waitng for that life of peace.
