There’s a Standard of Justice our Creator has made,
But we all fall short of it, to some degree every day.
These violations stack quickly and are never resolved,
Until Judgment Day comes and we’ll pay with our soul.
But there’s a Gift of Mercy our Creator has planned,
He’ll write-off your violations before you take the stand,
His Son will pay your judgment so that Justice is sated,
And so that you may return to the Standard He created.
~Poet of Ephraim
