Resistant Faith

You stood before my Majesty
and laid your gifts to bribe,
but oh you were disappointed
to find not your name in the scribe.
You dreamt of things to share,
but continued to hide away.
What sadness pained your heart
to know you’d lose on judgment day.
Taking all the written laws
and abiding with conditions,
how horrible to be condemned
by your own propositions.
Won’t you lay yourself to rest
and honor our Lord God Almighty?
He only asks for your repentance
to offer a life beside Him.
