Comes directly from Satan;
Finds lack of love its basis
For the evil one, a mighty baton.
To love our brothers and sisters
Is requested of us,
Regardless of our color,
We all belong to Jesus.
As I see a scene in heaven,
I am quite amazed,
White folk are in the minority—
Any sense of superiority completely erased.
On earth it is so different,
Where whites are given preference;
Think themselves superior—
To God, an act of ignorance.
As I look around me further
And speak to many there,
I find few with higher education;
And for wealth they didn’t care.
It was not a crown they’d hope for,
Or a place of honor or distinction.
They just wanted to see Jesus;
His love, their natural demonstration.
Is purely based on pride.
But God sees all as equal;
Salvation to none denied.
Pride is the sin
That kept many out of heaven;
It was not their color or education,
Once falsely considered a privilege given.
