Final Inspection

The Marine stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass,
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, Marine,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek,
To My Church have you been true?"

The Marine squared his shoulders and
said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
'Cause those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
'Cause the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.

I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here,
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was a silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the Marine waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, Marine,
You've borne your burdens well,
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've served your time in

When you have done all you can do, Pray some more, and  hand it over to Jesus.  He'll pick you up and carry you through the whole way, IF  you let Him.
