Our Promised Land


He has known your walking through this great wilderness (Deuteronomy 2:7; HNV).

1. There’s nothing else
We need to do in death:
Our work is done.

2. There’s nowhere else
We need to go:
Our race on earth is run.

3. There’s no one else
We need to see but God,
Who takes our hand,

4. And gently draws us
Back into his soul:
Our Promised Land.

  • p.s. I feel so blessed with my prayer and reading today – my Bible, a Charles Surgeon book and now a surprise double heling from you. Thanks Ruth!

    Better get a move on … asthma clinic today. How can I miss a 3 o’clock appointment – quite easy for me. πŸ˜‚ xxx

      • It was just a routine check, Ruth, and all’s good. How are you? I hope the ‘flu isn’t lingering. xxx

      • Really glad you have nothing Untoward to report. Original illness has progressed to a chest infection for us both, so we haven’t left the house for days. Loads of time for writing and sleeping, though, which are both a great blessing XX.

      • Sorry to hear that, Ruth. I hope your medics are looking after you, and hubby too. Lots of sleep is the best thing. xxx

      • Lol Ruth! At least you don’t have the sirens going off. It’s the right time to hibernate anyway. 😁 xxx
