When my time comes, and I know Iíve locked horns

With a beast that would take my life,

Iíll bow on my knees to my Father above ~

Iíll know it will come out right.


Iíll enlist the prayers of my Christian friends ~

Iíll put on my very best face;

I do not know where Iíll meet my Lord ~

But He knows the time and place.


For Iíve known some who hoarded their illness,

Creeping into some corner of life,

Playing the part of a martyr ~

Not willing to bring any strife.


But, why do we smile at each other

Or extend the outstretched hand?

Iíd walk with my friend to the borders

Of that beautiful Heavenly land!


Iíve seen God step in at the very last round,

Touch and heal a wounded soul,

Should that happen for me, then weíll all rejoice ~

Having shared in a common goal;


But if He says ďCome!Ē Iíll jump at the chance

To go on home with Him;

Iíll close my eyes here and know that I left

 Surrounded by praying friends.
