Palms of Glory
Poetry and Music by Andrew Pell

We all feel sorrow when loved ones pass.
In God we trust and the grieving will not last.
We forget they have joined the heavenly throng.
Rejoicing and singing a new song,
As Saints of God, they are washed in the blood of the Lamb.
No longer does human frailty plus such demand.
Life is temporal; we are all on a journey.
In heaven we have crystal clarity.
Palms of Glory are what they hold.
This can neither be bought nor sold.
Do not grieve for those who pass.
They are on a ship with a cross like mast.
Clothed in white, blameless and cleansed from sin.
Enjoying a banquet with the Eternal King.
This world, this life is transitory and all will pass away.
Those who are redeemed will experience the everlasting light of endless day.
