Psalm 16:5 & 73:26

By Rev. Dean Beaty   4/12/08


I am not to worry.  My future’s not left to chance.

“The Lord is the portion of my inheritance.”

Earthly things come and go.  They’re uncertain at the best.

I’ve put my trust in Jesus Christ, therefore I have rest.


“God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

I am His and He is mine and parting will be never.

“Portion” is the part that’s mine, its’ value is extreme.

He created and owns all things, His title-deed supreme.


And because I am His child, I am His legal heir.

All that’s His is also mine, there’s nothing to compare.

God says, “Joint-heirs with Christ.”  Just try to measure that.

No one can take that away, not even a bureaucrat.


My inheritance is all locked up.  The will is in God’s hand.

No probate judge nor Satan’s power can make God’s will not stand. 

Now I wait for Christ’s return, this world to evacuate.

I’ll join my Lord forevermore in heaven’s great estate.
