The City of God

Holy is the City of God and bright shining is its light.
Its light has shined like a bright beacon of hope through all the generations of time causing God's holy children to labor against all odds.

It is this hope that endows the saints with the patience to remain steadfast in the faith and enables them to live holy and pure lives.
Seeking no earthly crown they cannot become discouraged by earthly setbacks and defeats; for they seek for a heavenly crown which no man can take away.

They walk through their lives with a bright vision of the City of God's pearly gates, rejoicing through all suffering and persecutions, knowing that from this earth's dark prison they will soon be released.

A Heavenly pardon from earth's suffering is soon to be granted.
