Listen, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we will all be changed - in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

GARDENS OF STONE
by Heirline

Once again death has brought us here,
To this old solemn place;
As we lay a precious loved one down,
Into a lonesome grave;
The family has gathered 'round,
To say their last goodbyes;
But surely there are memories,
That won't be left behind.

And like the seed that comes alive,
In the ground they have been sown;
They wait for His return
To this garden of stone.

One day when Jesus calls my name,
He knows just where I'll be;
The dead in Christ shall live again,
For all eternity.
With those alive here on earth,
They'll be gathered around God's throne;
And there won't be any gardens of stone.

Jesus asked, "When I return,
Will I find faith on earth?"
And with the hope of His coming,
We place our loved ones in the dirt;
In granite we've etched their names,
To stand the test of time;
These markers here reminds us,
That a child of God here lies.

But one day they'll not be needed,
For death will not be known;
When He calls them forth,
From this garden of stone.

One day when Jesus calls my name,
He knows just where I'll be;
The dead in Christ shall live again,
For all eternity.
With those alive here on earth,
They'll be gathered around God's throne;
And there won't be any gardens of stone.

No we won't need any gardens of stone!
