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
It’s 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 men’s every deed;
Great White Throne with hosts surrounding
Earth and heaven fled away
And judgement for trespasses is decreed.
There’s a Book that grants exemption
Filled with names whose debts are met—
The Book of Life—the 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 carnal—
Who could bridge this great divide?
Religion’s man’s 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
God’s accounting Book prescribes,
Almighty God is holy—we are vile;
Yet it was the Father’s pleasure
His holy standard to ascribe
To debtors whom through Christ He’d reconcile.
Are the books on which you’re counting
Balanced by your fleshly deeds?
You need to make adjustments—don’t delay!
For each day your debt is mounting—
No escaping sin’s proceeds—
Don’t wait to settle matters on that Day.
