What If?

What If?

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.”
