I had on new clothes,
New sneakers on my feet.
I was there for class on time,
Went to the back and took my seat.
|Yeah, I'm moving up,
I'm already grown.
Soon I'll be graduating,
And out on my own.
|I talked to some of my friends,
We were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn't have said,
Did stuff I shouldn't have done.
|I knew I was different,
I felt God touch my heart.
I knew I should set a standard,
But then I'd be set apart.
|Walking to the bus,
I was not looking for strength,
I heard the car tires screeching,
But now it's too late.
|I'm standing in this room,
And I can see the heavenly gate.
Oh no! I never prayed,
I thought I'd have time to get it straight.
|An angel walked to me,
He had a book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life,
When would this dream end?
|I told him my name,
And he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly and said,
"Your name is not in this book."
|"Angel, this is a dream,
No, I can't be dead!"
He closed the book and turned away.
He whispered, "You can't proceed ahead."
|No! No, this can't be real!
"Angel, you can't turn me away.
Let me talk to God,
Maybe he'll let me stay."
|He led me to the gate,
Jesus came to me.
He did not let me in, but said,
"Beloved, what is your need?"
|"Jesus," I cried, "please,
Don't cast me away from you!"
Tears ran down his face as he said,
"You knew what you needed to do."
|"Lord please, I'm young,
I never thought I would die.
I thought I'd have plenty of time,
Death caught me by surprise."
|"Lord, I went to church,
Please Jesus, I believe."
He said, "You would not accept me.
My love you would not receive."
|"Lord there were too many hypocrites.
They weren't being true."
He took a step back and asked,
"What does that have to do with you?"
|"Lord, my priests and bishops said,
The church is above all, so agree."
"They told you lies they know,
But now, too late, you see."
|"Lord, my family claimed to be saved,
They weren't real, you know."
He said, "I died for YOU,
Now I have to go."
|I fell to my knees crying to him,
"Lord, I planned to be real tomorrow."
I couldn't make him understand,
I had never felt such sorrow.
|Then it hit me hard. I said,
"Lord, where will I go?"
He looked into my eyes and said,
"My child, you already know."
|"Please Jesus," I begged, "the place is so hot."
It seemed to trouble and grieve him.
But he whispered, 'DEPART FROM ME.
I KNOW YOU NOT."
|"Lord, you're supposed to be love,
How can you send me to damnation?"
He replied, "With your mouth you said you loved me,
But each day you rejected my salvation."
|In that instant,
Day turned into night.
I never knew such torture could be.
Now too late, I know the bible is right.
|If I can tell you anything,
Hell has no age.
It is a place of torture,
Separated from God, and full of rage.
|You know, I thought it was funny, a joke,
But this one thing is true;
If you never accept Jesus Christ personally,
HELL IS WAITING FOR YOU.
|So please ask him right now,
Into your heart,
Before it is too late.
Like a dream, life goes in haste.
