My King of Heaven

“Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the Lord!
 Peace in heaven, and glory in highest heaven!”
 (Luke 19:38 NLT)
“Be Thou My Vision” is a Christian hymn of Irish origin.  The words are based on a poem attributed to a sixth-century Irish poet and Priest, Saint Dallan Forgaill, who had gone blind.
One of the lines of the poem goes, “High King of Heaven, my victory won.
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heav’n sun” The powerful words of this song indicate that this Irish Priest, who could not see the world around him, saw God like most of us don’t.  He had a vision of heaven, like many of us, can’t grasp.
I will be seventy-four years old on my next birthday.  As I ponder about heaven, it seems sweeter with every succeeding year.  I don’t want to die, clinging to life is normal, yet when God calls my number, I don’t think I will argue.  As I have said before, you can be so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good, but you can also be so earthly minded you have no heavenly vision. 
Forgalill wrote, Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
                          High King Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.
I can only add, be Thou my vision, my Creator, and God.
