Believe and be saved
the minister said,
Believe and be saved
and rise from the dead.

Through grace ye are saved
from sin and from hell,
So simply believe
and all will be well.

The preacher continued
and read from the book,
How all can reach heaven,
both angel and crook.

When all had been said
and the church recessed;
With money collected
and everyone blessed;

The preacher retired
to his spacious new home,
In his humble Mercedes
with everything chrome.

He sat in his study,
his thoughts running deep,
He dozed for a moment,
and died in his sleep.

He ran to Saint Peter
and wearing a grin,
Said “I believe in the Savior,
so please let me in”

“Oh no, not another”,
said Peter with a sigh,
“Satan’s sure working,
the tolls running high.”

The preacher looked puzzled,
then saw in a flash,
The plan of salvation,
beginning at last.

Believing is nothing,
if nothing is done.
In getting to Heaven
you follow the Son.

To follow a leader,
you do what is said,
Faith without works
is nothing but dead.

Satan knows Jesus,
believes in him too.
So what’s the difference
between Satan and You?

Believe in the Savior,
but always recall,
Faith is important,
but sure isn’t all.
