The Sands of Time Are Sinking

I love this verse in particular because it shows what our true priority will be in Heaven. I had told my husband I wanted this on my tombstone, but he said, "No way, you have to pay by the letter." So I said, "Okay, how about on the bulletin, or sing it at my funeral."

vs. 4

"The bride eyes not her garment,
But her dear bridegroom's face;
I will not gaze at glory,
But on my King of grace;
Not at the crown he gifteth,
But on his pierced hand;
The Lamb is all the glory
Of Emmanuel's land.

Anne R. Cousin
