To The Recently Deceased

The Angels they are calling, and you, you cannot stay
When the angels of the Lord beckon, we all must obey
Happier you will be, back where you are from
Now is your time, someday mine will come.
And when my day does arrive, and whemn my time is near,
I hope I can face the world without a hint of fear,
Admit the sins Ive comitted, and with them was content
But I knew I was wrong, was sorry, and for them did repent,
Just like you did, as now your crop you reap,
Beside you and the Lord, a place for me keep,
For if I am good enough, I will get my reward
And then I will join you, in the house of the Lord,
Though large in number, not great was any sin
And I feel, the Lord been good, eventually will let me in!
