Entering with Them – v10

Walking beside me
an usher, a deacon
offering me a bulletin
a welcome as I entered in
entering with them
the saints resting here
those who have yet to stay
in heaven above

Walking beside me
an usher, a deacon
offering me a place
as if at a wedding
seating behind the groom
in the bride’s church
something special about my time
in this hallowed space
