SONNET

 

Step inside the door, it opens to you
if you but approach.  Do not be afraid,
for what is beyond is that which is true.
You enter, and are instantly remade
The Lord Himself greets you, you hear a song
He takes you to your home, your friends are there
Angels are at your service, you belong
You have never been treated to such care.
The Lord invites you to His wedding feast,
A celebration that never will end.
You rejoice, and sing; all your cares have ceased
The Lord is your King and Father and friend
   And forever shall He reign -- evermore!
   You shall see it, if you walk through this door.
