Beyond Life’s Gateway
There is an open gate at the end of the road,
Through which each must pass alone,
And there is a light we cannot see,
But the Father knows His own,
Beyond this gate our loved ones
Find happiness and rest;
And there is confort in the thought
That the Heavenly Father knows best.
