The moment that I leave this place, my body left behind
Straight to God’s glorious Throne I’ll go and precious peace I’ll find.
The angels all around will sing and praise will fill my heart,
With hands raised high in gratitude this worship’s just the start.
The moment that I leave this place my soul will be set free,
And in His presence, hope fulfilled, what beauty I will see.
The limits of this world so far have kept me earthly bound,
But then I’ll rise and soar to Him with glorious trumpet sound.
The moment that I leave this place all pain in shadows fade,
Replaced by gentle loving hands, back to the child He made.
The presence of my Savior now no longer just a dream
All voices raised in joyful song how dim this life will seem.
The moment that I leave this place you may somehow be sad,
And grieve our time now at an end and miss the joy we had.
But know, dear one, we’ll meet again if your heart hears His call.
If to His precious love you’ll turn and rise above The Fall.
He gave His life upon the cross no greater love could be,
That all who call upon His name live in eternity.
Those arms are open now for you just turn and see His face.
So at that moment we’ll be joined when you will leave this place.
To His Glory
