The Bride has given birth to many children

And they, in turn, gave birth to many more;

The Christian tree has branches across the heavens

But what faith holds the keys to heaven's door?

 

"In My Father's House, there are many Mansions."

What do I think that Jesus meant by that?

I seldom give out obvious explanations

And I do not try to wear the teacher’s hat.

 

Of the things that I have read, that Jesus said,

I cling to two as I wander on my way;

The Golden Rule is always first and foremost,

Yet, it's the hardest to live by every day.

 

Throwing rocks at glass houses is the other

And it might fit in these thoughts, written down.

"In My Father's House, there are many Mansions."

I'll leave the judgment to the one who wears the crown.
