What Is Heaven?

By Terry Barnhill

What is heaven,

and why such hope upon it?

Heaven is already here

By faith in Christ who brought His kingdom near.

"Carpe diem," said ancient Horace,

"quam minimum credula postero."

"Seize the day trusting not in tomorrow."

Our hope is in the promises of God,

His Kingdom comes within our faith.

'Tis not postponed by hours or days

'til we pass through the yawning gates.

It begins in our present walk with Him

Who set us free from mortal sin.

Oh grave where is thy terror,

and death where is thy sting,

When living in God's radiant love,

We find the heart to sing!
