When I Depart
My body nowís only a shell, where my spirit used to dwell,
No longer in this earthly tent, up to Heaven Iíve been sent,
Though on earth I have died, Iím now by my Saviorís side,
No longer in this body friend, to begin life that has no end.
Indeed on earth, I have died, but, now my bodyís glorified,
Iíve risen as my Savior said, alive in Heaven far from dead,
While lifeless my body may be, Iíve passed to life eternally,
Now from earth Iíve departed, life with God has just started.
When on this earth I see death, I shall receive eternal breath,
Entering in that heavenly portal, Iíll receive a body immortal,
A new body to begin eternal life, with my Lord, Jesus Christ,
As I enter in that Eternal Door, to be with Christ forevermore.
Death again will see me never, as I will live with God forever,
In a mansion prepared for me, that I now can touch and see,
A place surpassing all my hope, a paradise of eternal scope,
A home granted to me by grace, to sit with God face to face.
Death was just to say goodbye, to meet with God up on high,
Where one day Iíll see you there, in a paradise, without a care,
For one day soon we will reunite, to be forever in Godís Light,
As death wonít stop us friend, from life with God, with no end.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)
