Will you hear the words you long,
will your name be among the few
or will you hear “Depart from me,
for you I never knew?”
Yes, on judgment day for many,
the Lord will listen to their plea
they’ll make up their excuses
as why from sin, they didn’t flee.
They may say I did not know,
what You required of me ~
and He will say “I gave to you My Word
so the truth and the way you’d see.”
They’ll give Him all their reasons,
and will put up a strong defense
but Jesus will remind each of them
of their every secret offense.
Then He will turn them away,
they will not enter heaven’s gate
instead Jesus will sentence them
to their own damning fate.
What will my excuse be,
what unconfessed sins, have I done?
This I must ask myself, before I stand . . .
in front of God and His Son!
King James Version
“And then will I profess unto them,
I never knew you: depart from me,
ye that work iniquity.”
Deborah Ann Belka
