The barometer by which we are measured
The sum of all parts that have been gathered
May only be known as the Day of Judgment

Through this journey of life and by how we have lived
To pray that we have done more good than had sinned
Not that there need be a balance for atonement

For it is not in the sum of those actions
It is in the acceptance of Jesus in whole and not a fraction
And of course, to whom, we must repent

So in this life and in this time on Earth
From the moment we are born to our rebirth
One can only pray to be ready for the Day of Judgment
