Treasure Island

WHO CAN ASCEND


Who can ascend God’s holy hill?
Who can call God his friend?
Who can declare he’s done God’s will
And so his soul defend

Can you with heart and soul deny?
That sin has held your hand
So innocent you’ll never die
As God has always planned

Can you stand Jesus face to face?
Stand eye to eye with light
Declare your life’s so full of grace
In robes of brilliant white

Have you a soul so dazzling clean
A heart so rich and sure
That nothing can enter in between
Revealing ought impure

If yes is not your answer friend
If one of them is no
Then help you need before the end
Before to sleep you go

You need God’s Flame to burn inside
God’s Son to stand you by
Accept God’s Lamb for you has died
Before my friend you die

With God there is no darkness there
With God there is no night
No lie will live nor have a share
Where God displays His Light

No place for sin no place for shame
No place for flesh is made
Eternal stands The Righteous Flame
Who’s radiance cannot fade

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
