I seek a better country that is, an heavenly where sweet peace and righteousness shall reign eternally.
I seek a better country a hallowed, celestial sod where Jesus only does rule revered by all as God.
I seek a better country where never is shed one tear pain and suffering unknown for sin can’t enter there.
I seek a better country of its splendors I have heard prepared by the Savior returning for those who obey His Word.
I seek a better country where the forever fashion will be putting off this veil of flesh to dress in immortality.
I must enter into that country whatever sacrifice I must make for only then will my soul be satisfied when in His likeness I awake.

“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.” Psalm 17:15
Evil men and seducers do wax worse and worse
Many with actions to say the least, terse
With rioting, looting, as they scream and curse
Through lies, propaganda, the simple ,deceiving
And through self deception their own myths believing
Diabolical iniquity their minds are conceiving
It’s a spiritual battle, be this understood
Of those calling good, evil and evil, good
Wanting to bring crime to your neighborhood.
Continue in the Word of God you have learned.
Continue in righteousness. Let sin be spurned.
Continue in Scripture to sink your roots deep.
Continue in wakefulness. Don’t fall asleep.
Continue in doctrine and to it take heed.
Continue in witnessing, sowing good seed.
Continue when you feel at the end of your rope.
Continue, for you have a lively hope.
Continue though the course of this world takes its toll
till you reach the end of faith; the salvation of your soul.
