Freely Given
Poetry and Music by Andrew Pell

Why do we shun everlasting life and eternal bliss?

Is it because we don’t give a damn or don’t know what we will miss?

We are only here on this earth for a short span of time.

All we are concerned about is what I own and what is mine.

Yet it does not have to be this way.

We can change our way of living without delay.

All we need to do is acknowledge God and our divine heritage.

This information cannot be found with a soothsayer or a sage.

Understand the richness of the bible and what the other sacred texts can offer.

Then you ask the question “Why should I bother”.

We have a divine heritage that we must discover and claim.

Imagine an eternity without sorrow or any earthly pain.

Imagine a sun filled land where darkness does not enter in.

Imagine a land of happiness, a land where divine opportunities may bring.

All this and more is freely given for those who reach out to accept.

There is no caveat or clause, this invitation will not dissipate and the sun will never set.

It is there to accept for a glorious reunion with our Father.

It is not for sale or for any kind of barter.

It is here and now to embrace and to live.

Once we accept, our heavenly Father has so much he wants to give.
