Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
The Final Word

Oh it will be wonderful
At the end of the age
For those who believe
To see that heavenly place

The next to the last word is judgment
But the last word is grace

The faith that saved us,
Not our doing
But His own
A gift from Calvary
And the way

When we are collected
The wheat from the weeds
The good fruit
Cared for by the gardener
All along.
