1 Thessalonians 3:13 (NIV) – May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.

Every one of us is born
And so also it will not be long
When every one of us will die
And so do you have a reply
If you were today asked
The important question, what next?

What exactly will happen
When our journey here is done
We will for sure meet Jesus
To be forever in His Presence
The answer is very clear, in the Text
To this question, what next?

We will meet Him as our Savior
Our loving gracious Redeemer
For those who Him have chosen
As their Lord, their Savior own
That would be their context
To the question what next?

But if Him we will meet
As our Savior ever sweet
Or as the Judge all-powerful
Is our own choice, our own call
So choose Him today, be positive
Of your answer to, what next?
