The Writing on the Wall by Raymond A. Foss

The judgment of God will come
in a time we do not know
all of us coming before the Lord
to explain what we have done

His book will be open
to the pages he will look
asking us to account for our lives
the choices we have made

Will we be like the king
who oppressed his people
or will we be like true disciples
following the call of our master

The writing on the wall
will come in due time
best that we are faithful
to the calling of our God
