There were people who will rejoice,
on that very special day,
for God's obedience was their choice,
and they strove to keep evil at bay.
Their love for God was such,
they wanted things done right,
wishing not the fire's touch,
nor the hellish plight.
They were people most pious,
praying only for the gardens,
they lived not, a life of liars,
but sought the Lord's pardons.
They will be joyous on the king of days,
as each will shine as a gem,
I think of them and my heart says,
I want to be one of them!
