"Will you?" I questioned the Lord,
"Will you really? Some people say it's difficult.
They say it's hard to get to heaven.
That, If I am not persecuted, I will burn in the pits of hell.
At times, I think of you as a cloud of wrath,
Just waiting above until the time comes,
When you'll strike with your iron fists of thunder
and send everyone helpless, desperate for life.
Your judgment scares me. I might not be saved."
No matter what, believe me, I
