embers float beyond the rocky point, I wonder where they drift.
an unseen sea they roll,
as ships upon waves that unceasingly shift.
into the night high and above all things, theyíre like souls going home.
into their ghostly state,
rise as if fleeing demons sitting on a treacherous throne.
scattered are some as heaven they seek, I know their wayward path.
their glowing light burns out,
as to ash they turn, back to earth they are cast.
are the waters that I walk upon, my life as a testament?
it is by faith I stand,
it is by faith that will lead me into judgment.
are all ash except by Godís own hand, Jesus Christ makes the difference.
forever or burn out,
choice for Jesus is our only deliverance.
I go, as I watch the embers float, gone above all the others.
into Godís hand Iíll go,
will avoid being worthless smoke that just hovers.
