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
