When this life is over, and we’ve lived it all for self,
we’ll have nothing in eternity – but self, and self, that’s all:
no good, no joy, no love – no pleasantness again.
For God is good; God is joy; God is love. God is why pleasantness exists.
If all we have is self, and nothing good from God
If all we have is what we generate, and what’s from God is gone
If God gives all that’s good in life, and now He’s gone for good
What misery we’ll have, and nowhere else to go.
There is a place assigned to go where nowhere else exists but there.
It’s far from where God’s blessings flow; it’s bad and worse, no good at all.
