I'm Taking a Trip
I'm taking a trip to a foreign country-
a country I have never seen before!
This will be so much different than previous trips.
I won't need to pack any clothing - no glasses, or medications.
My passport has been purchased with a great price.
The tour guides on this flight will be courteous and swift.
I will pass through security like a breeze.
I understand this is a round trip and there will be a layover celebration;
then I will be returning with an enormous tour group made up
of many horse-riding folks!
There is still room on this flight, and I hope you will be coming, too!
You better hurry, as standby is filling up fast.
So is the red-eye, and time is running out!
Be ready to depart in an instant,
and keep watch on the overhead screens.
You do not know what time or what gate we will depart from!
A new name will be given to me in this new country,
so, my name tag will change.
Don't worry - you will still be able to
recognize me by my beaming smile!
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them
in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Comfort one another with these words.
