DREAMS OR REALITY

“Wrap the drapery of his couch about him,” how about a body bag?

“Lie down to pleasant dreams down there,” or watch that body sag. (*)

.

Forget all that corruption!  All dust to dust will turn.

May pipe some music to that grave, good listening while you burn!

.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.  What difference will it make?

God puts it all together again almost like shake-n-bake.

.

God made us and He can unmake, like, throw away some stars.

Whole bunch of unmanned planets, too, like, Mercury and Mars!

.

Is there a purpose in all this?  Who knows?  I know God knows!

Tsunami power can destroy!  As can the wind that blows.

.

Whole lot of fire down below!  A lot of gas and heat.

Mount Saint Helens and Vesuvius both prove that is hard to beat!

.

So can we trust our God to save?  Provision has been made!

You cannot hack it be yourself, good works will not make the grade.

.

Salvation is by faith alone and absolutely free!

Christ made provision on that cross!  His blood now cleanses me!

.

What more can simple pilgrims ask?  Lie down to pleasant dreams?

That dream may last a second, you will wake up realities!

.

So real you will never give a thought to what transpired before!

So real we will not have thoughts to waste on skies or walls or floor!

.

So real we will recognize each face though ageless we will be.

And visit?  Time will be no more, just everlastingly!
