Heaven on Trial

Heaven on Trial


It seems that God knows always best

That God is never wrong

If only Heaven man could test

How true would ring the song?


Does God stand true to all He’s said?

Does favouritism reign?

How come some find no rest when dead?

While some get born again


Why should the past condemn one’s soul?

Should Heaven even care?

Why should we burn as human coal?

Can God be so unfair?


Will Heaven stand before the throne?

Angels receive their due?

Is God content to watch man groan?

Will Jesus share their view?


But has it not occurred that way?

Did God not stand on trial?

Was not Christ’s life laid bear that day?

Condemned to death so vile


Did God not pay the price of shame?

Blameless of sin and guilt

While man stood by, cursing His name

While righteous blood was spilt


God reigns unique faultless and sure

His deeds are perfect love

His motives blameless, heart pure

And innocent as a dove


Who else but God can judge mankind?

No heart from Him is sealed

He knows our words hears our mind

Our very soul’s revealed.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
