Delivered to Heaven
Just like a babe, delivered in pain,
Passed thru the waters and given a name
Welcomed by family, in Jesus’ name.
My journey to heav’n is almost the same.
Death pains are only the labors of birth,
E'en passing through waters when leaving this earth.
My Father will greet me and welcome me there.
He’ll hug me and hold me with warm tender care.
I’ll put Jesus’ face to that wonderful voice.
I’ll breath in new air; I’ll cry and rejoice.
New garments of white, are waiting, spot free.
He'll show me my home prepared there for me.
I’ll drink from the fountain refreshing and clear.
Surrounded by family that I hold so dear.
The saints will rejoice when to heav’n I’m borne.
By angels I’m carried on that wonderful morn.
Loosed from earth’s bonds, unfettered at last
Eyes looking forward, forgetting the past.
What a wonderful day when Jesus I’ll see
When to heaven I’m ‘birthed;’ delivered, and free.
The dark of earth's "womb" aside `twill be cast.
The “Light of the World” I’ll bask in, at last.
For finally I’ve reached my heavenly home
Forever to be and no more to roam.

Rom. 8:11, TLB
Rom. 8:21, KJV
Death is not the end. Death on this earth is just a physical separation of the soul from the flesh. The soul lives eternal and is delivered to heaven for the Christian where he is in his final home and with his eternal family. One by one, each believer is “birthed” or delivered to heaven where Jesus, and our Heavenly Father are waiting for us.
