As The Saints Enter In

Will the Saints go marching in, or humbly greet God, who died for sin?
Will they march in as if deserving, or enter humbled hearts for serving?
How will they enter Godís Gate above, open only, through Godís love?
The love and mercy poured on us, when by Grace we embraced Jesus.

All knowing we would return to dust, without that humble heart of Trust,
Knowing that weíd return to the earth, apart from Christís Spiritual Birth,
For itís nothing that we have done, but all the work of Godís Only Son,
Christís finished work on the Cross, for we bring only, our sinful dross.

Undeserving, Grace allows us to see, it is not of us, but, Godís Mercy,
As Christ received all we deserve, when His Father, He chose to serve,
Becoming for us Godís Sacrifice, so that we could enter into Paradise,
The finished work, of Christ alone, makes way for us to be Godís Own.

What God did, truly humbles men, when in Christ, they are Born Again,
Through Godís Spirit from above, men are humbled by Amazing Love,
And through faith, alone in Christ, by God, we are granted Eternal Life,
Beginning with New Life we receive, when Godís Truth, we truly believe.

It truly is the Lordís Gift of Grace, that we shall enter Godís Holy Place,
As men born in sin, with feet of clay, only God could provide The Way,
So it is God Who will be Glorified, as all the Saints humbly step inside,
The Holy, Dwelling Place of The Lord, to serve with Christ forevermore.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What ABlessed Hope, Bob Gotti
