In Heaven

In Heaven, do they remember the slave songs?
Of the yoke weighted down by all the wrongs,
The spirituals sung by those oppressed by sin,
And of the great burden the sinners carried within.

In Heaven, do they dwell on the memory,
Of those who spread misery,
And impoverishment and pain,
While losing their souls for temporal gain.

In Heaven, Does Love’s eternal presence,
Fill the soul with joyous reverence?
Do souls sings paeans of joy,
And for mercy received their songs employ?

In Heaven, are robes blue as the skies,
Or  resplendent as the sunrise?
Will anything on Earth stand scrutiny?
Compared to being in God’s presence eternally.
