Citizen of Heaven

Citizen of Heaven
my passport to Heaven
is Jesus
He paid the price
of the ticket
marked HEAVEN
and declared IT:FINISHED!

i will be dancing the Eternal Song
the Veil torn
i am a Priest in the Holy of Holies
with the Host of Heaven
i will fall prostrate,
cast my crown
He was Laid bare
on the Wooden Stake of Life

to pass the Pearly Gates
and run through the Roads
laid with Gold
to eat of the Fruit
of the Tree of Life

with the saints of the ages
who trusted In His Name
the martyrs who bore the insults
rather than deny Him,
are introduced before the Holy Angels
given new names and Holy White Garments
of Righteousness,

these are the citizens of heaven
the Lord’s Own,
those who Lifted His Holy Name
to shame and ridicule,
even to death,

those who took the Narrow Path
rather than the wide road to destruction
the Sheep who heard His Voice,
denied themselves,
counted all as rubbish
to Know Him

this is The Royalty of Heaven,
the common, the despised,
the meek, the weak, the lowly,
the persecuted, the dirty, the homeless,
the torn, the shamed in this life

But, oh no,
we will sit with Him
worship Him,
be delighted by Him,
cast our Love
before Him,
He is the Joy of Heaven,

when i lay these clothes of my flesh down
i will pass from this place to Glory!
to Reign with My God
the Creator of All
He deemed me fit for the Kingdom
declared me Righteous!
when i threw my heart to His Feet
and called it rubbish!

Artist's Description

“For our citizenship is in Heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ,
who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His Glorious Body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.”
(Philippians 3:20-21)
