Ready for Heaven but Not Fit
By David Smith September 23, 2009
Ready for heaven? Salvation is clear;
Christ paid the price on the Cross; have no fear.
By no means fit; a humble man as I;
My righteousness alone;
As filthy rags; the evangelist did cry.
Ready, but not fit;
Though the Work of the Cross, alone; salvation is the hit.
My body has an age. My mind is immature.
My heart is deceitful; and yet a desire to be pure.
The body slowly dying; the mind to dwell on God;
And a heart for Christ; temptation, that I rob.
To be ready for heaven, and not to be fit.
Held back by sin and corruption; to decay as I sit.
Through His work alone; I can’t possibly pay the price.
By His saving grace, faith will suffice.
