Nearer heaven now, sin no longer attracts!

Is that what aging is about?

Out living desire to do the wrong things

Consideration to doubt!



Of course not!  It is not the normal way,

True believer I claimed!

Preaching the Gospel for 35 years,

True I had doubts that shamed!



Did those Disciples, Christ’s followers,

Ever doubt Christ’s claims?

Many miracles!  Were they believing or

Were they sometime ashamed–



To admit to doubts, of course, it is natural!

But still we remain true!

From a small boy’s lunch the miracle

Of course!  Natural thing to do!



Crucifixion, one disciple and Mary,

His mother there observed!

The  horror!  Suffering between two thieves,

But absent as though Christ deserved–



No better.  Matthew back to collecting taxes

From already oppressed,

Rest of them sure all, except the beloved

John and the Mary, sore distressed.



 Mourning there by that horrible cross

Suffering as none other could!

For hours dangling there by just nails!

As only criminals should.



Then one criminal like to gladden the heart

Of Savior, “Remember me when…”

Oh, yes!  This day with Me in Paradise!

Savior, the criminal, be-friend!



Also, this ole’ boy, very soon Spirited,

Of course, with body glorified,

Of course, no idea when but the where?

In the new life magnified!
