ON THE BANKS OF THE RIVER…


Here are more encouraging words from the book “Bible Facts About Heaven.”  The following are the words to a song written by Herbert Buffum.

******************

Here so many are taking vacations,

To the mountains, the lakes or the sea;

Where they rest from their cares and their worries-

What a wonderful time that must be!

But it seems not my lot to be like them,

I must toil through the heat and the cold

Seeking out the lost sheep on the mountains,

Bringing wanderers back to the fold.

Chorus-

When I take my vacation in Heaven,

What a wonderful time that will be!

Hearing concerts by the heavenly chorus,

And the face of my Savior I’ll see.

Sitting down on the banks of the river,

‘Neath the shade of the Evergreen Tree

I shall rest from my burdens forever-

Won’t you spend your vacation with me?
