This music by MercyMe is the very song that ushered my late husband into God’s bosom, after succumbing to his battle with liver most cancers. It is a fantastic track describing the glory and the enjoyment that awaits every believer when they die. I do not forget that day when we have been met by the doctors who were taking care of him, and we had been advised that there was nothing more that they could do for him. As soon as they left, weak, but brave, my husband asked that the tune he had come to love a lot, be played. I keep in mind feeling numbed, but watching my husband with eyes closed, and with a smile on his face, listen to the comforting lyrics, as if he had already entered the promised City. There are many many more untold stories like this, of lives touched, healed and moved by the power of Gospel music.
