SOUNDS

Sound only carries so far

In our varied earthy air.

But don’t take it for it granted

It will be the same UP ^ there.

 

UP ^ His praise will be glorious,

Anthems will be full and abounding,

Thanks will be freely given for

“God’s grace” firmly re-sounding.

 

How far will such rejoicing carry?

Possible from star to distant star.

Echoing through His universe

At unknown distance, most far.

 

Will sound also carry far

In that horrid other place?

DOWN  \/ there where are gathered

Those who rejected God’s grace.

 

Some sinners here revel in noise, 

Cars and dives throb with sound;

DOWN \/ such sad souls may find,  

Screams, gnashing, super abound.

 

But some sinners liking things more quiet,

Would seek the wilderness, the nook.

Terrible sounds are DOWN \/ there, friend;

Change, pray, read and believe the Book.
