The Land of No Goodbyes

There’s a land of no goodbyes,
The Bible tells me so.
It has golden streets
Where those who trust Him go.

No tears of sadness
Or of grief.
Just Jesus’ love –
Our quick relief.

First there are hugs
As we meet family and friends,
And even from others we’d thought
We’d never see again.

We enjoy a time of reunion,
Catching up on all things new.
Over there,
Just beyond the blue.

There’s a land of no goodbyes,
The Bible tells me so.
It has golden streets
Where those who trust Him go.
