STANDING WITH THE KING OF GLORY

Oh hopeless sight

Under cold, gray sky

dead and decaying

knarled tree branches reach heaven-ward

Heaven’s gate reflects light

Many will attempt to enter

naked and knarled

without robes of white linen

These souls were misinformed

God’s home is shut to sinners

Who can enter?

One leaning not

on one’s own understanding

but on Jesus

He is wise; we are

foolish in our own

reasoning

Rest on His leading

Show Him you love Him—

Obey the Ten Commandments

Claim His sacrifice on Calvary

Repent and seek after holiness

not the world’s pleasures

Prepare to stand

┬áin God’s presence

The gate to heaven

will open only for those

who follow Jesus Christ

and who know Him intimately

One can approach the throne

of God, with other

humble saints

clothed in His robe of righteousness

prepared for a permanent stay

with Him

the King of Glory

THE LIVING WORD

Who can regard the day

A failure

A treasure never exhausted

Suddenly raided

And torn

Strewn portside in the Gulf

Fragments of books

Settling atop watery graves

Of soldier/sailors

While waves chop at our vessel

A wicked wind whirls

A warring nation led by Satan

Dares attack God’s people

Blinding light appears

As glorious angels slay sinners

God’s people protected

Blessed

For we believe His Word, the Bible

We cling to His promises within

His mercy and faithfulness

Never exhausted
