Take heed to this warning
    God's going to say
As we look to the future
    On God's judgment day.

Many will say
    'Why can't I go in?
I've done these good deeds
    To pay for my sin.'

But God will reply,
    'Who told you that saves?
You can't claim a promise
    That I never gave.'

Many will say,
    'Why can't I go in?
I'm trusting baptism
    To pay for my sin.'

But God will reply,
    'That won't get you saved!
Where in the BIBLE
    Was that promise made?'
Many will say
    'Why can't I go in?
I've kept the commandments
    To pay for my sins!'

But God will reply,
    'Assumption you made,
You trusted in something
    That can't get you saved.'

Many will say
    'But I really tried!'
And always the same
    Will be God's reply.

'You're all trying something
    That I never said.
You should've looked into
    The BIBLE instead.'

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom
of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many
will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?
and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful
works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from
me, ye that work iniquity."
  MATTHEW 7:21-23
