Step Through the Veil

by Clinton Herring

To walk in darkness all alone
A fearful chill throughout the bone.
Lost to life each step not sure
Each wanton sin an easy lure.
The truth of God a vague cliche
That once in a while would pass your way
Yet never could you fill your soul
That darkened pit, that bottomless hole.
An empty craving, a restless toil
Upon this earth, across this soil.
You walk an empty, shallow life
Of anger, hatred, lust and strife.
But there is one who loves you so,
God who cares for you, I know.
"Step through the veil my child," He calls.
You stop, not sure, your motion stalls.
"Step through the veil my child," says He,
"The veil that hides your life from Me."
"My Son I sent to bring you home
to stop your endless, fruitless roam."
"His death upon the cross did cure
the guilty traits of sin for sure."
"Accept His death in place of yours.
Step through the veil, new life is yours."
Oh, glory, oh joy, oh see!!!!
Forever now you're free!!!!
but only in Jesus Christ
the way, the truth, the life.
