Notes for BESSIE LUELLA GOFORTH:
A poem written by Bessie L. Willis

              The Desire of a Christian

In Heaven, there are many things I want to see:
I want to see each loved one who has journeyed on before,
but first of all I want to see my Saviour and behold His beauty and all of His Glory,
I want to kiss His dear face that was bruised for me,
I want to hold the dear hands that were nailed to Calvary's tree,
I want to walk with Him through Heaven's beautiful gardens, and
I want to sing with the heavenly angels.
PRAISES TO OUR KING.
