Heaven For The Homeless
John F. Montgomery
Is there a Heaven for the homeless
When we leave this earth below?
When our time on earth is over,
Will we have a place to go?
It's hell enough here below,
Living on what others give;
If God gives us a home in Heaven,
Then we'll have a place to live.
I can almost see us now,
Gathered there around God's throne;
Feeling very proud of ourselves,
Because we finally have a home.
What about all the others,
Who call us a bum
Laughing at us behind our backs,
And always making fun.
Isn't it true we're all the same,
In the eyes of God?
Then, you'd better be careful, friend,
Of the path you trod.
Think about those things you say,
And of the things you do,
Or you might find on Judgement Day,
That you are homeless too.
