A Step to Paradise

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Isaiah 53:6-7

All of us, like sheep, have wandered off in sin,
We have gone astray in our own way.

To the extent that all our iniquity was laid on Him,
As He died to free us of our errors, all of them.

Jesus was afflicted and did not open His mouth, and cry foul,
As a lamb led to the slaughter, He took His last bow.

And faced death’s punishment for every sinner,
Yet many ignore Him, and forget He was a winner.

On the third day, Jesus arose as all time froze,
And death lost its sting for Christians as it goes.

For we now have hope of eternal life to come,
As death is just a step to Paradise with God’s Son.

The greatest event in human history escapes the lost,
Who look away from hell and do not consider the cost.

All it takes is to be humble, and ask Jesus to save you,
And make Him your Master, and in Heaven your due.
