There is a lock
To seal the soul
For all eternity --
There is a lock
That we cannot see --
It is the perfect seal
Of Jesus Christ
Upon the soul
We bear --
It is the lock
Created by God
For each of us to wear --
This lock seals
Our destiny
And provides
For each of us
Perfect certainty --
It prevents
Us from a dire
Eternity --
This is the perfect lock --
The one designed
For the souls of men --
It is the lock
That protects our souls
And redeems us
From sin --
It prevents the devastation
That we would see
If we choose
Not to believe --
For believing
Is God's plan
For me and you
That someday
We may spend
Eternity beyond
The skyward view...

So when your soul
Is sealed
And the perfect lock
God does place
Remember that the lock
Is the gift
Of our heavenly Father
And the perfect example
Of His holy grace...

WOW! This was beautiful! Great job!

Some very lovely images here. I think your poem will flow more smoothly if you combined some short lines into longer ones--as it is, your reader "halts" after only 3 or 4 words, and the meanings are compromised. Nice job with the topic.
