You're better off than us
in your glorified body
watching down on us.


Your smile is brighter than the sun;
you are finally happy.


You will no longer know pain
or sorrow or fear.


You converse with angels
and laugh with Jesus.


You sing every day
and walk golden streets.


Face to face with your Maker,
you know His love firsthand.


We are so envious of you-
your mansion up there
is more majestic than any here.


What a life after life.
