Waiting for redemption

The time has begun
For our hearts to care
To be more than flesh
We must be redeemed
By our acceptance
Of forgiveness
To abandon despair
To accept
Grace and mercy
Though alien concepts to some
As our foundation
From birth to adulthood
We become aware
Of the falsehoods and inequities
That fill our existence
But there is no damnation
In the hall of our king
We can aspire
We may ascend
To the lofty place
If we are generous
If we are kind
As our lives bless others
Mercy and grace are our calling
The lives we live will inspire
Inside us instead of anger
We will feel joy
And by that
We will rise
And become worthy
To serve our king
