Angels Play

It is said that the angels of God separate the wicked from the just
The wicked in the furnace of fire where gnashing teeth meets the dust
All good is placed in vessels to save, but the bad is carry away
I am told prayer is placed in the oil for lamps that count on this day
So pray your sins away, and those of the ones you love to lay
 On Life Everlasting to come with the joy in laughter of love
 Found in family in all our favorite likes in your Fathers glove
 That holds the treasures new and old to now take away
 The Kingdom of Heaven to come on earth, many to stay
 Our hearts desire in parables that are still yet to play

 So I ask you to lay down a good prayer, this a must
 That you pass on all you want and think on, that's lust
 Each day you live is a blessing to make another day
 Hope yet to raise from the dead, heaven on the way
 We are guilty of forgetting this, by our desire to play
(Matthew 13:49-54)
