When he had passed through dark Jordan When he at last saw the Lord
Danie Ferreira 1930-2006
When he had passed through dark Jordan When he at last saw the Lord Ah with what reverence and wonder His heart the Master adored
Earth's cares had suddenly vanished Heart-ache was his never more Weariness he had forgotten 'Heaven's bliss' only in store
For he had followed the Master Faithful each step of the way 'Well done' resounded in heaven On his great 'homecoming' day
His place can never be taken No-one can match what he's done But can we wish him return here After his crown he has won?
He'd say earth's glories are transient He'd say its joys don't surpass Those that are waiting in heaven With Christ, his Saviour, at last.
