This Is No Game of Bluff

This is no joke
Time’s beck-and-call
That bids us trust in God
For all

This is no hoax
Man’s pray-and-plead
That God will satisfy
Our need

This is no game
Inhale, exhale
Toward that Gate where
Flesh will fail

This is no trick
Of time and space
This is Reality
Of God’s grace

This is no bluff
Of Stuff’s nonsense
This is Choice before

This is no con
Though fools applaud
Those who dare turn their
Backs on God

This is no joke
Is man’s salvation for
