Gold and Ash


Gold and silver precious stones

Refined and pure in Fire honed

Once refined will stand all time

 

Wood, hay, stubble

Turn to ash

Burned up in a flash

 

Through the fire all must pass           

To life or death                      

Judgments both of them do face

 

One God covers with his Grace

For one sought daily the Lord to please

One gave the Lord all faith and praise

 

The other now turned away

Gave no thought of what God said

In them the spirits dead  

                 

To self they were true           

They sought always their own to do 

  True to self unto the end     

         

So onto judgment; both shall pass

One shall see, bow down and cry         

Only to late to testify

 

One shall step to loves embrace

Covered in loving grace

Ever living before his face

 

 The other put out in disgrace

Never more to see his face
