A Strange Dream - Poem by Joseph Anderson
In my dream I awoke in Heaven
Standing near that fabled gate;
Watching God surveying sinners
And determining their fate.
'In my house are many mansions'
Was the sign for all to see.
All your faiths and creeds are welcome,
And this'truth shall set thee free'.
First, he bade a Hindu enter,
Next, a Muslim, then a Jew;
When my turn came, I was praying
Lord, dear Lord, please pass me through.
At this moment I awakened,
Tearful, trembling, full of fright;
Never knowing, only hoping
To be favored in God's sight.
As I lay in bed, I pondered
What this message held for me;
Does God judge us earthly mortals
By our works and morality?
