A Better Country

I am longing

for a better country

not the country where I live

not the country I have left

My heart is yearning

for the fulfillment of your promise

yearning for heaven

yearning for you

I am asking

for the eyes of faith

that my life will not be wasted on riches

or on the building of empires soon to fall

My heart is waiting

to see your glory revealed

to see your face reflected

in the beauty and wonder

of a better country
