CLEAR DESTINATION

A few more days this kid must go!

A day, a week, how can I know?

Just the feel of things can tell,

But for your sake I will not dwell!

.

.

On sordid technicalities,

Like all my past sins, wicked deeds,

You see Christ has forgiven all!

While still a sinner, made the call!

.

.

Plea for forgiveness, saw His face,

Dying there!  I am saved by Grace!

The Grace of God!  What need I more?

To see me safe on Heaven’s Shore!

.

.

That pain wracked visage, what compares,

All our sins He bore them there.

The Sinless One deliberately

Took them all to Calvary!

.

.

Should not His plan forever old,

To die for sinners be told and retold!

The place He suffered, Calvary,

Represents death for you and for me!

.

.

Did ever such love such passion meet,

To lift the sinner, bring defeat

To Satan’s plan, who hates man so

Meeting out torture to saints below.

.

.

Satan is hate!  The epitome

Of self destruction, with you and me.

Of course, he loves to see us in hell!

He hates!  How long?  Eternally tell!

.

.

Of course, it is hate!  When tortures done,

He will not quit!  Think another one!

Then see Jesus to countermand

To take control, to take a stand!

.

.

But for the one too weak to hold

The cliff hanger, all are told

Let go!  Drop into loving arms,

Rest there awhile, feel no alarm!

.

.

No fear, no dread, your Captain is near!

His comforting smile banishes fear!

“Walk with me…”  Blest invitation!

Leads you to your destination!

.

.

Where gladness is not just a place to be,

But the presence of God eternally!

.
