The Privilege To Ascend
---------------------
I see there stretched out before me
what very well could be
The Grandest Staircase of them all
one I hope to ascend
but will I even be allowed
to approach it at all
what might I then be assured of
or upon what would it depend
should I even be considered
to be worthy of it all
or that I would be entitled
to make such a climb
The Grand Staircase to Heaven
where sits The Almighty of all time !
knowing I'm one of the righteous
not naked and guilty of my crime
The answer should be simple
and every man should know
upon Whom he can depend
and what each step would show
but before I make the final step
an action must be taken
with the first step that I make
the old ways must be forsaken
knowing life everlasting awaits
rather than with refuse not to awaken
so even if the entire staircase
speaks of a future event
it is now being unfolded
in the lives of those who repent
should the steps appear many
there needs to be only two
His Promise I Have Accepted
Before the feet of Him Who's True !
Hearing Him then say to Me
Welcome Home for I knew You
Because of this grand staircase
many have been made insecure
their lives are filled with so much doubt
while each step has become a lure
as they no longer are important
they have become just steps of lime
not knowing at any given moment
they've been relieved of their crime
that they might then be allowed within
and not discarded for an eternal time.
Consider now each and every step
as a choice that you have made
reckoning each it 's own value
was it worth the price you paid
the direction of each and every step
could be either up or down
consider now how you are dressed
are you naked or wearing a white gown
for none shall then even rise up
unless their own lives were laid down
but then between the first and last
there appears to be such a wide span
the steps appear to number too many
but that too is part of His plan
for His Gift is indeed so simple
not heard by the wise and cunning
but is revealed in the wide open
not a disguise to have men running
either permission will be granted to ascend
or you will be separated for all time
which is the world without end.

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. therefore I know
my righteousness shall go before me; the glory of the LORD shall be my rereward.
Psalm 40:8; Isaiah 58:8
