He Is Not Gone by Kinserdahl

by Kinserdahl
(Wisconsin)

Say rather, "He has arrived."


And not that, "He has gone."

May every thought of him,

Be in that Land of Dawn.



Arrived! To hear God's voice,

And see His welcoming smile,

And then to greet again,

Those he lost for a while.



Arrived! To tread no more,

The weary path of pain,

Nor feel the waning strength

The body feels again.



To be forever free,

From all that limits love,

In joyful rest carefree,

He walks in realms above.



Then say not, "He has gone,"

Nor think of him as dead,

But say, "In the Father's house

He has arrived today instead."
