Only God Can Tell

In medieval chapels they still pray
that their souls will be saved

Sins of their fathers all the way
back to Adam and Eva haunt
their reverie.

But no one knows how black their
souls from sins of yesterday.

At their final farewell…
will it be Heaven or Hell?

Redeemed or condemned?
Only God can tell!
