Perdition vs Salvation

Doomed, grotesque, decaying corpses ~ swollen, swarming with maggots, emit agonizing screams while Hell claims their damned souls. Mangled bodies gasp their last breath. Bloody corpses hang, blackened ~ pus-filled. Vile laughter echoes: Satan reigns supreme. God’s light shines down on me ~ shows me the way. When I kneel to pray, He sends down hope to fill my soul ~ grateful, healed, whole. Love glows bright through dark of night. Heaven’s choir of angels join ’round the faithful. God’s love’s in sight. Salvation’s promise… saved.
