No Place as These
Is there an island in the midst of the ocean
Where all is peace and joy and love and health,
Where we can live our dreams, although a myth,
Where’s never an evil thought or bad emotion?
Is there a mountain peak upon the range,
Where air and man are pure, and souls are free
To give of self with generosity,
Where all is perfect order, without change.
No place as these exist upon the planet,
But if we live today for Jesus’ grace,
He’ll gladly welcome us to heaven’s place —
No pain or death or bitter tears are in it.
