All heaven struggled, good and evil clash;
Lucifer's crowd were cast to earth in shame.
Mankind's plot to reach heaven, mere slapdash;
God upset language; words became a game.
In His hometown, Jesus bound His powers;
miracles in Nazareth were blocked out.
Were their skeptics so different from ours?
God clouds the ears of those who dare to doubt.
Sovereign insight is way beyond man's light.
Facing death on a cross, no small bother;
repentance from sin brings life eternal.
Christ's vision requires infinite foresight -
mankind united with God, the Father.
Existence sans God is life infernal.
