THE LETTER

My friend I stand in judgment now and feel that you’re to blame somehow.

While on this earth I walked with you day by day and never did you point the way.

You knew the Lord in truth and glory but never did you tell the story.

My knowledge then was very dim; you could have led me safe to Him.

Though we lived together here on earth, you never told me of your second birth.

And now I stand this day condemned because you failed to mention Him.

You taught me many things, that’s true. I called you “friend” and trusted you..
