Your only Son

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful (2 Timothy 4:7; (NLT).

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face (1 Corinthians 13:12; NRSV).

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life (John 3:16, NRSV).

**************************************

Lord,

When our time on earth 
Is done,

And, long or short,
Our race is run,

With all our battles lost
And won –

Then, we will see 
Your only Son.
