Jesus said, "I go to prepare a place for you,
So that where I am, you may be too."
Then Jesus died and up to Heaven He went,
But His disciples He left behind to witness the event.
Later His disciples wrote the Gospels so this we would know,
That there are two paths from Earth up to Heaven's door.
Believe in Jesus and when our days on Earth are at an end,
Our spirit will go to Heaven and there eternity we will spend.
If we believe and are alive when Jesus returns with a Shout,
Then we will join Him in the air and nevermore will we doubt.
None of Jesus' followers will be left behind or be forgotten.
Each and every one of us will dwell forever with Christ in Heaven.

If you become depressed and feel left behind and all alone,
Remember Jesus loves you and that one day you will stand by His Throne.
