The times we live in are even more uncertain than they were in my grandparents time. We have no guarantee that any of us will be here tomorrow and when we say good-by we can’t be certain we will see each other again in our life on earth. This world is not my forever home, I am bound for heaven where I shall spend eternity with my Lord Jesus. What a glorious thought!
This song really touched my spirit when I heard it sung by the Singing Hills on Tribal Trails. It awakened a longing to be there in my heavenly home with my Savior and all my loved ones who have gone before me whom I will meet again with joy!
THE NEXT TIME THAT YOU SEE ME
I’m ready to move to heaven to a land that’s fair and bright,
Where there is perfect peace, in that everlasting life.
Jesus has gone to build for me, a mansion there I know
And the next time that you see me I may be living in my heavenly home.
The next time that you see me may be on streets of gold.
The next time that you see me I may be wearing a brand new robe.
May be kneeling at His feet or shaking His nail scarred hand.
The next time that you see me I may be living in gloryland.
You may come to visit me and knock upon my door,
You may not get an answer, I won’t be living there anymore.
I’m just here for a short while and then I’ll soon be gone,
For the next time that you see me I may be living in my brand new home.
