It is said in the Bible,
"For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but will have eternal life."
As the Lamb's Book of Life opens right before your eyes
Every one of you shall find out where your destiny lies
If your name has been found, then that means you accepted Christ
If your name hasn't been found, then you rejected Christ
Some of you were given time to pray and wash your sins away
And some chose to turn your back on God and go astray
Some of you have made preparations to this day
But some of you have not prepared, needless to say
When I call your name out, please make a step forward
And confirm your identity in order to be acknowledged
Would the person by the name of Terry Richards step up?
[Terry] I'm here.
[Priest] Are you Terry Richards?
[Terry] Yes, sir.
Terry, your life has been a living instance
of what it truly means to be a sinless Christian
You stood by your family when everyone else turned them away
When they always had something hurtful to say
You also risked your life to save that little girl on her birthday
It's a shock that nobody noticed that S5 coming her way
And that was coincidentally on a Maundy Thursday at Easter time
The day before Jesus died
You seemed to pick a good day to put God in the picture
Not just for the victim, but also because of the Spirit
that you had the heart to accept
And that courage has rewarded you a place
Right here in Heaven with the One who you shall now embrace
Enter now, witness the foundation laid for you
There'll be no sorrow, no grief and no pain for you
The worst is over for you, Terry
Therefore, go and be with Him now, and be merry
Before I do, there's something that I would like to state
that the peace I feel within me now is amazing
I know right now my dear wife and kids mourn me
But they need not, for from now on I bask in His glory
Go now, enter the Kingdom of Heaven
Yeah, I will, thank you, sir, I'm gonna kick it with my brethren
Would the next person by the name of Peter Lynn step up?
[Peter] I'm here.
[Priest] Are you Peter Lynn?
[Peter] Yes, sir.
Mr. Lynn, I'm really sorry to say this
But your name does not appear in the Lord's pages
This possibly means that there was never a time
that you thought about Christ and accepted Him in your life
But I went to church every Sunday with my kids and my wife
I received my Holy Communion when I was just five
Since then, I've been attending every service at His tower
From the Easter and Christmas Masses to the Liturgy Hour
I worked hard all my life and always spared a thought for others
My friends, my cousins, my mother, father and brother
I even looked after my Gramps when the guy was ill
Took him to the doctor every week to prescribe his pills
Mr. Lynn, you're missing the point
Going to church and feeding your ones doesn't give you any points
What about the day you lost your job and you cursed
Raised a fist to God and screamed things that were hard to put in words?
I didn't mean to curse God, I was just enraged
There were always competitors that made me feel upstaged
It doesn't matter what you suffered, you still gave in to wrath
You made a bad decision that day and took the wrong path
What was the point in beating that businessman up in the super mart?
What did he do to you except put stuff in his food cart?
You do realise that you'll have to pay a penalty
You treated over half of your mates as enemies
You were overly jealous of your neighbours
Spent the most of your life yelling like a hater
You'll have a spend an eternity in Hell
[Peter] Wh-what .....? Hell .....?!
[Priest] Yes, the place of punishment you'll forever dwell
No! I believe in Jesus, I believe in Him!
Give me just one more chance and I'll receive Him!!
Please don't ..... Please don't make me pay!
PLEASE!! No, get out of my face! GO AWAY!!!!
NOOOOO!!!!! (voice fades)
Would the next person by the name of William Evans step up?
[William] I'm here.
[Priest] Are you William Evans?
[William] Yes, sir.
Mr. Evans, you've gone through a lot of hard times
Like Jay-Z, you've experienced a "Hard Knock Life"
You lost your girlfriend in a car crash, you were treated unfair too
You were bullied, cheated on, and even had your hair pulled
But regardless, you never lost your trust in God
Kept the Spirit in your heart from the start
I know it must've been hard for you to keep in touch with your faith in Him
Especially when a lot of non-believers negated Him
You held your ground, slowly but surely
Stood up with courage, and lived life purely
For this, you'll be rewarded with eternal life
Go, be with Him now, and live under His light
Praise the Lord! Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, St. Peter!
I will go right through the Gates now and be with Him.
As for the rest of you, your day has not yet arrived
You will now descend back to Earth to continue your life
What you've just witnessed is just a sample of what happens when you die
But fortunately for you, it isn't yet your time
I suggest you guys think about this when you depart
And make time to accept Jesus as your Saviour in your heart
I don't care what you do, what you say, what you accomplish
As long as He's somewhere inside you to help you flourish
Love your enemies and love your neighbours, and don't hate, relate
Form an identity, be a player, just make your place
Take your pace, know your role, adopt a better state
I hope to see some of you here at the Pearly Gates
