Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel?
Will I dance for You Jesus or in awe of You be still?
Will I stand in Your presence or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all?
What I will do Is forever WORSHIP YOU!!!!!!!!!

"Rejoice in knowing that death does not have the final word. There will be a tomorrow."
