I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
(Jeremiah 1:5; NLT).

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

1. Father,
We are always one with you.

However long
Or short our lives,
We come from you,
And must return to you.

2. While we are on this earth
You wait within:

Longing for us
To seek your presence;
Yearning for us to change,
And turn from sin.

3. During our exile here,
We have a choice:

Learning to love you, Lord,
In all,
Or stopping our ears,
So we can’t hear your voice.

4. But, when our lives are done,
We meet again.

Then, as we kneel
Before your glory,
Will our hearts leap with joy –
Or burn with shame?


The day is coming when God will judge all of us. In the Scriptures God says, “I swear by my very life that everyone will kneel down and praise my name!” And so, each of us must give an account to God for what we do.
(Romans 14:10-12; CEV).   

Your eyes will shine, and your heart will thrill with joy (Isaiah 60:5; NLT). 

Their faces will burn with shame (Isaiah 13:8; GNT).
