FEAR, HONOR, LOVE HIM

Heaven!  What is it like up there?

“Golden streets” they tell,

“Pearly gates, River of Life!”

Happiness, all is well!

.

.

And that is where I plan to be!

Sure, do not care to burn!

So I will be good then I will be cleared!

No!  Heaven cannot be earned!

.

.

My goodness just is not good enough!

It alone will not do!

I go to church, I wash my neck!

My goodness stands in lieu. (*)

.

.

In lieu of God’s divine approach,

His goodness we cannot know

Until we glue ourselves to Him!

In His direction flow!

.

.

Cannot be good for Christ Himself

Did not make such a claim!

Our God in heaven!  Only He

Has goodness in His name!

.

.

The great “I AM” is over all!

In heaven sin cannot dwell!

God’s wholeness, holiness complete

Makes all clear all is well!

.

.

For heaven is perfection plus!

No sorrow enters there!

Just gladness, joy, yes, joy complete!

Earth’s best cannot compare!

.

.

Man’s goodness, far from good enough,

Sins shroud hangs over all!

In heaven sin cannot dwell!

It was Satan caused the fall!

.

.

Sins dark cloud will cover all!

Then how can we be cleared?

By bringing all our guilt to Him

The One that we once feared!

.

.

(*) in lieu of (instead of)

.
