No Bad Times in Heaven

By Pauline Duskey 9/6/2005

There will be no bad times in heaven.
No one will be begging for bread.
Fruits will be abundant in heaven
Where all of God's children are fed.

We know that sin will not enter;
There will be no trouble or strife.
We'll dwell in peace and contentment
And drink from God's fountain of life.

In heaven, where we are going;
The wrongs down here were made right.
We will meet the saints from all the ages,
Then we will gaze at the heavenly lights.

We will stand on the bank of the river
Beneath the shade of a beautiful tree.
There we will meet with our Saviour
And all of our love ones we'll see.
