Their follies, their burdens, their griefs, their woes!

(Charles Spurgeon)

Soon, very soon, the saints of the earth—shall be saints in heaven!

Their hairs of 'snowy old age'—shall be crowned with perpetual joy and everlasting youth!

Their eyes bathed with tears—shall be made as bright as stars, never to be clouded again by sorrow!

Their hearts that now tremble—are to be made joyous and strong, and set forever like pillars in the temple of God.

Their follies, their burdens, their griefs, their woes
—are soon to be over! Sin is to be forever slain, corruption is to be forever removed—and a heaven of spotless purity and of unmingled peace is to be theirs forever!

"For God has reserved a priceless inheritance for His children. It is kept in heaven for you—pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay!" 1 Peter 1:4
