TRULY PENITENT

“Rejoice in the Lord always and

Again I say rejoice!”

It is a Christian’s prerogative

It says, we have no choice—

.

.

But to praise and adore the very one

Who died to set us free.

Not just for the whole world

But He died for even me!

.

.

Alone no longer, so many friends

Will love and share with you!

And even so many you did not think

Would make it, so very true.

.

.

You have heard of last minute turnabouts

“Thief on the cross,” just one.

Some wounded wartime just before death

Cry desperately to God’s Son.

.

.

Were they heard?  Well, just what do you think?

Would a Savior who suffered hear?

He suffered!  He died for everyone,

Yes, He heard and drew them near!

.

.

A Savior who loved a saint through life.

Would He not truly rejoice

To hear that last minute

Plead with his dying voice?

.

.

Yes, I believe my Father cares

And loves us equally!

Did He not die for everyone?

And did He not die for me?

.

.

“Come unto Me…” not just a few

But inviting one and all!

“This day in Paradise with Me!”

All who will hear His call!

.
