The fear of death holds us in chains
Barriers on a river of peace unrestrained
Calling us to futile hope in ourselves
Duping us as hollow all this life entails.
The heavenly man became human out of choice
Giving His death throws a mortal voice
Since God is our friend and source of release
Giving the option of eternal peace.
The higher beings of creation bear no such gift
Their rebellion to eternal chains does shift
No salvation for their monumental mistake
Their destiny in the darkest realms now take.
But the human, male and female set apart
For the radiant glory all from a Father’s heart
Can enter heaven with souls redeemed
And a mind renewed, as the Saviour dreamed.
Fear is the state of all who forget God
His love and peace in the dirt and mire trod
But the ransomed few who have learned His ways
Will inherit the kingdom and everlasting life displayed.
