There he wept in the darkness,
Deep in the heart of Hell;
Kneeling and crying to Heaven,
From below in the pit where he fell.
Please, God, answer one question, he begged;
What sins brought this plight to me?
The lies that I told? The cruel words I spoke?
The stealing? Or was it my greed?
No, child, it wasn't any of those, He replied,
That cast you away from Me.
The trespass that sent you down to that place
Was only your unbelief.

He who believes in Him is not condemned; but
he who does not believe is condemned already,
because he has not believed in the name of the
only begotten Son of God. (John 3:18)
