Promised Place

"We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us… And he [Hobab] said unto him [Moses], I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred" (Numbers 10:29,30).  "The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God" (Psalm 69:32).  "The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools" (Proverbs 3:35).  "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life" (1 John 5:12). 

We're going to the promised place,
Which Christ has said that He will give,
Where we shall see Him face to face
And in His presence we shall live. 

Though some refuse the invitation
And to their own place will depart,
The humble will receive salvation
Who seek the Lord with all their heart. 

The wise inherit heaven's glory,
But shame shall be the fool's reward. 
There is no "happy ending" story
For those who will not trust the Lord. 

O Lord, the promised place ahead,
Beyond this land of sin and strife,
Is ours forever, as You said,  
Who have the Son, and so have life.
