Book Of Life


When the Book of Life is opened

For all to see and read

A thousand years of surprises

Will fall before our eyes.


The deeds of the living

And the dead do ring.

Angels keep the records.

All true accounts afford.


                     An angel beside you is writing

All that you say and do

So with Jesus, keep talking

To make everything new.


I pray he can write the good

And erase all the bad

So for all the truth we stood

Will be forever blessed and glad.


Then sing the song of the ages

With all the heavenly angels.

Twill overwhelm the soul

                        And be called on Jesus roll.
