Back of the Choir

As it is written,

There is none righteous, no, not one:

Romans 3:10 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

How many think they’re good enough for God,

At least are good enough to Heaven dwell?

I tell you, think such things and you’re a fraud,

The only place you’ve earned is down in hell.

You can’t stroll through an operating room

Or roam around within the CIA;

What makes you think you’re good with cheap perfume?

The stench of all your sins gives you away.

Not one of us are righteous, no not one.

A speck of sin keeps you from Heaven’s door.

But covered in the blood of Christ it’s done;

Believe He died for you, your sins He bore.

The grace of God allows this all to be;

Without it there’s no hope for you and me.

~~~~~~~~~~~

  1. What you’re saying is true. Although we may feel that we’re worthy, the smallest thing can separate us from heaven. Jesus didn’t suffer for nothing, we’re blessed if we want to be.
