A Conversation

God said, Be good.

Man said, I should.

God said, You can't.

Man said, So I shan't.

God said, You'll learn.

Man said, You're stern.

God said, If not stern

How would you learn?

Could you ever pay the fee

To live with me

And be, for good?


God said, Be true.

Man said, I will.

God said, You won't.

Man said, I'll mount.

God said, You'll fall.

Man said, If I call?

God said, I will come

To do what must be done.

Blood will pour.

Trust and be sure

For I am true.


God said, Rejoice!

Man said, Have I choice?

God said, You will choose.

Man said, And if I lose?

God said, We will win.

Man said, What of sin?

God said, To hell it goes.

But when the trumpet blows

And the chosen rise up,

The wine cup we'll sup

And shout for joy!
