After You, the angels.
    What a sight it will be.
    Like those shepherds,
    we will surely be afraid.
But, like those men of old,
    we will surely rise,
    to offer shouts of praise,
    to declare undying adoration.

After the angels, the gathering.
    Not a gathering of the robed,
    the rich and well-to-do,
    but folks like me and you.
Folks from heaven and earth,
    though gone, now present,
    voices joining ours
    in joyous unbounded celebration.

After the gathering, the fulfillment.
    All the prayers not answered,
    will surely come to pass,
    even "on earth as it is in heaven."
 And all the promises ever made,
    those hoped for in the heart,
    now seen and known so clearly.

(Mark 13:27)
