Waiting A While

Tune: University

('The church of God a kingdom is')

John 16 v.16-22


John's Gospel Series (20)


Jesus to the disciples said

He did then look ahead

A little while, and they would see

Him not, so would it be


Fo He would die , be crucified

Though they be not denied

His presence for long, for He rose

Triumphant o'er His foes


So another little while, then

They would see Him again

For He would to Father ascend

A life now without end


Though for the time they have sorrow

Joy later they would know

Jesus, He would return again

The Saviour of all men

            THANKS UNCLE STEVE ~ Creat Organ ~ Great Tune ~ Great Hymn ! For Me as a Church Elder & Bible Teacher ~ The Gospel of JOHN is the most sacred Gospel in the Universe ! It presents JESUS as the Eternal Son of God ~ AMEN ! I could write a different Poem on every single verse in John's Awesome Gospel. In LONDON D L Moody (where you there ?) preached for two weeks on one single verse JOHN 3 v 16 ~ check it out in your BIBLE ! I love your poem based on JOHN 16. He lived to age 33 (I can empathise with that} ~ He died on the CROSS ~ He rose from the DEAD ~ He ascended into HEAVEN as our Representative on Gods right hand ~ AMEN. You have lifted us all up to Heaven today. Thanks Your friend BRIAN

              Thanks Brian. And now beginneth YOUR series on John's Gospel, with Number 1 of 3,467 - or however many verse there are in John's Gospel! Notice that traditional reading of the Lesson there: 'beginneth'? heehee. And here 'endeth' things, cos I will stop waffling now!
              Oh yes, I remember when...... I heard those sermons of Moody's in person! lol.
