Behind the Curtain
Jesus went behind the curtain,
(From top to bottom rent),
To the Holy of Holies,
For us His life was spent.
Jesus was our pioneer,
Dying and rising on this earth’s sod.
Now we are running
Toward our Hope in God!
We now can go through Jesus,
(To the open gates of Heaven, too),
To be in the very presence of God,
Our Hope – firm and true.
— Charles B. Mayes

“Behind the Curtain” – that phrase touched me deeply recently. Jesus went there so we could have daily Hope in Him, and Hope of Heaven!
