On the day when books are balanced
When accounts must reconcile
When every secret dealing is exposed
All transactions are examined
Not a single book or file
Can keep some covert contents undisclosed.

In the world of merchandising
Itís a practice we expect
That everything must tally to a tee
There be careful analysing
There be nothing incorrect
The figures when examined must agree.

There will be a great accounting
On a fearsome future day
When opened books expose menís every deed;
Great White Throne with hosts surrounding
Earth and heaven fled away
And judgement for trespasses is decreed.

Thereís a Book that grants exemption
Filled with names whose debts are metó
The Book of Lifeóthe ledger of the saved,
For He purchased our redemption
And He cancelled out our debt
By rising up triumphant from the grave.

God is Spirit, man is carnaló
Who could bridge this great divide?
Religionís manís attempt to make ends meet,
But through Christ the Lord eternal
Son of Man Who lived and died
The reconciling process is complete.

You can never meet the measure
Godís accounting Book prescribes,
Almighty God is holyówe are vile;
Yet it was the Fatherís pleasure
His holy standard to ascribe
To debtors whom through Christ Heíd reconcile.

Are the books on which youíre counting
Balanced by your fleshly deeds?
You need to make adjustmentsódonít delay!
For each day your debt is mountingó
No escaping sinís proceedsó
Donít wait to settle matters on that Day.

Are you a voluntary Treasurer? Ouch! Beautifully painted. God bless you.

Something we all should consider.

I added some "bumps" in the lines to make them more rhythmical but that did not ruin the thoughts.

I am thankful that Peter told us how to take care of our sin by being baptized for the forgiveness of them so we could be given God's Holy Spirit to live within us to guide our lives.

Your story is a good wake up call if we haven't obeyed Jesus yet.
