No drunkard shall inherit
The place so bright and fair,
No idolater, nor covetous
Unrepentant, shall enter there.

Adulterers are excluded,
Thieves and liars as well,
No extortionist admitted,
No revilers there shall dwell.

For nought that difileth
Can ever enter in,
For in God's holy kingdom,
There is no place for sin.

Only those who are repentant
And washed as white as snow
In Jesus' precious Blood
Can into the kingdom go.

Only those who have received
The Saviour as their own,
Can join the ransomed hosts
In worship around God's throne.

Only those in whom God's Spirit
Has forever come to stay
To sanctify them wholly,
Those who trust and will obey

And do the Father's will,
Not merely say, "Lord, Lord,"
But who follow their Lord and master,
According to His will.
Only those born from above
Shall God's kingdom one day, see,
Only those whom the saviour
Has from their sins set free.

These, saved by grace, shall inherit
That kingdom bright and fair,
God says, " Be not deceived,"
Friend, will you enter there?

Author- Joy Patterson

"And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, 
neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie,
but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life."
                                       Revelation 21:27
