'eleventh hour' no-hopers do not believe,
Or allow their specious arguments to you, deceive.
Each "hour" is symbolic, representing many years,
Exposing the complainers, and costing them dear.
One's sinful deeds in life are judged until the end,
Those forgiven are baptized, and refuse to re-offend.
'eleventh hour' no-hopers reject His Word,
Fear persecution will spoil their self-preserving world.
But when they* are old
and their sins piled high,
Their thoughts turn to God and prayer before they die.
Begin reading the Bible, their spirits still under a "veil",
But only faithful servants have it removed without fail.
When asked to serve they*
offered lame excuses,
And when reproved they returned with verbal abuses.
Before the cord is snapped, the golden bowl broken,
Humbly seek forgiveness and the Word God has spoken.
Christ employed many during this symbolic "day",
And will, after the eleventh "hour", their holy wages pay.
His servants, of whatever "hour", will be resurrected,
To the Spirit heavens
only those Christ has subjected.
Why leave your obligations to God until too late?
Why leave yourself abandoned to a Godless fate?
It takes time to be subjected for Christ's name's sake,
So begin now, don't delay, why hesitate?
