What if He said when man ate the fruit,
“I shall let him bear his sin alone”?
What if He chose comfort over death,
And said, “Let every man to hell be thrown”?
What if He disowned that disciple
Who denied he knew about Him thrice?
What if He fought back His accusers
Or justified Himself when enticed?
What if He treaded not that hill
Where He would be crushed—soul and vein?
What if He summoned Heaven’s angels
So they that voiced “Crucify” are slain?
What if He withheld His love and grace
So we may work our way through Heaven’s gates?
We will never stand on Judgment Day
And enjoy life in the Eternal State.
He would rather suffer in Hell alone
Than reside in Heaven without you.
He gladly chose the nails you deserve
‘Cause that was all He needed to do.
There’s nothing you can add to His Work
Only you receive it as a gift.
For rejection will only bring pain,
Broken hopes and a wishful, “What If.”
