A poem by a friend of mine.

The Last Sunset

When the last sunset fades into darkness,

And this troubled world sinks into sleep;

When the last soul is saved and the Master,

Says, "Father, that's all we can reach."

'Twill be like on the cross - "It is finished!"

And all the rejoicing is done

That is given by angels in Heaven

For the salvation of anyone.

No more souls to be saved - it is finished.

No more pleading and no more debate -

So the peace always asked for is silenced

By men who are full of hate.

But the trusting souls gone on to glory

Will live one eternal day,

In the presence and love of the Savior

Prince of Peace who led all the way.

When the last Sunset comes in the evening

Then the morning will break bright and fair.

Jesus our friend and our brother,

Will greet us with His tender care.

When the morning breaks forth and the splendor

Of Heaven is there in full view;

I'll be watching dear brother and sister,

With Jesus...we'll watch for you!
