The Eternal Ink

I dreamt I was in heaven
Where an angel kept God's book
The angel was writing so intently
I just had to take a look

It was not, at first, the writing
That made me stop and think
But the fluid in the bottle
That was marked 'Eternal Ink'

This ink was most amazing
Dark-black upon the blotter
But as it touched the parchment
It became as clear as water

The angel kept on writing
But as quickly as a wink
The words were disappearing
With that strange Eternal Ink

The angel took no notice
But kept writing on and on
Turning each page and filling them
Till all the space was gone

I thought the angel wrote to no avail
The efforts were so vain
For written were many pages
That would never be read again

As I watched on and I wondered
That this awesome sight was mine
I actually saw a word stay black
As it dried upon the line

The angel kept on writing
And I saw a look of satisfaction
At last there was some print to show
For all the earnest action

A line or two dried dark
And stayed as black as black could be
But strangely the next paragraph
Became invisible to see

The Book was getting fuller
The angel's records true
But most of it was blank
With just few words coming through

I knew there was some reason
But as hard as I could think
I couldn't grasp the significance
Of that Eternal Ink

The mystery burned within me
And I finally dared to ask
The angel to explain to me
Of the amazing task

And what I heard was frightful
As turned the angel's head
Looking directly at me
The angel eventually said

"I know you stand and wonder
At what my writing's worth
But God has told me to record
The lives of those on earth

The Book that I am filling,
Is an accurate account
Of every word and action
And to what they do amount

And since you have been watching,
I must tell you what is true
The details of my journal,
Are the strict accounts of you

God asked me to watch you
As each day you work and play
I see you as you go to Church
I see you as you pray

But I was told to document
Your life through all the week
I wrote when you were arrogant
I wrote when you were meek

I recorded all your attitudes
Whether they were good or bad
I was sorry that I had to write
The things that make God sad

So now I will tell the wonder
Of this Eternal Ink
As the reason for its mystery
Should make you stop and think

This Ink that God created
To help me keep my journal
Will only keep a record
Of things that are eternal

So much of life is wasted
On things that matter not
Far from all the searching
Of knowledge to be sought

I just keep writing faithfully
And let the ink do the rest
For it is able to decide
What's useless and what is best

And God ordained that as I write
Of all you do and say
Your deeds that count for nothing
Will just disappear away

When Books are opened someday
As sure as Heaven is true
God's Eternal Ink
Will tell what mattered to you

If you just lived to please yourself
The pages will be bare
And God will issue no reward
When you finally get there

In fact, you will be embarrassed
You will hang your head in shame
Because you did not give yourself
In love to God's Name

Yet maybe there will be a few
Recorded lines that stayed
Showing times you truly cared
Sincerely loved and prayed

But you will always wonder
As you enter Heaven's door
How much more glad you would be
If only you had done more

For I record as God sees
I don't stop to even think
Because the truth is always written
With God's Eternal Ink"

As I heard the angel's story
I fell down and I cried
For as yet I still was dreaming
I hadn't actually died

I said: "Oh angel, tell God
That as soon as I awake
I'll live my life for God
I'll do all for His sake

I'll give in full surrender
I'll do all He wants me to
I'll turn my back on self and sin
And whatever isn't true

Though the way seems long and rough
I promise to endure
I'm determined to pursue the things
That are Holy, clean and pure

With God as my Helper
I will win lost souls to thee
For I know they'll live with God
For all eternity

And that's what really matters
When my life on earth is gone
That I will stand before God
And hear Him say 'Well done'

For is it really worth it
As my life lies at the brink
And I realize God keeps books
With His Eternal Ink

Should all my life be focused
On things that turn to dust
From now on I'll serve God
I can, I will, I must!

I'm giving all to God
I now have seen the link
I saw an angel write my life
With God's Eternal Ink
