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.
