God's Love by Kathleen Rhea
God's love did surely fill my heart; my soul, my mind, my every part. So many tried to take Him away; by what you did or what you'd say. His "narrow way" I would not forsake; through the strait gate, His way I did take. For without Him I could no longer live; once I knew all for me, He did give. Not an angel, nor perfect, but as all, a sinner; but finally through grace He made me a winner. No physical pain is in God's love; just trust, faith and an eternity with Him above. I prayed daily, and all I forgave; please, call upon the Lord and beg to be saved. Now this is the end of my earthly story; forever rejoicing, received into glory! With Father in Heaven, saved from perishing in hell; my final words as I bid you farewell: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy 4:7.
