Ship in Time - KP Yohannan - Gospel for Asia

Luxury liner
sailed away
with hundreds
who boarded
to enjoy life.

Days on end
of fantasies fulfilled
with drink
laughter and all.

Entertainment unlimited
twenty-four hours
“This is heaven,”
one passenger said.

Out in the ocean
the ship sailed along
two weeks to go until
they reached the next port.

Then disaster struck
the ship hit an iceberg
made a hole
in the bottom of the ship.

The captain knew
how dangerous it was;
just like the Titanic
they would soon sink.

He got on the speaker
and announced to all,
“Drink, be merry
and enjoy life.

“Everything is free
for everyone now.
Take all you want
hold nothing back.”

In a few hours
the ship sank
to the bottom of the ocean
All died.

The world is a ship
sailing in the ocean of time
time is running out
it will all be burned up.

the god of this world, says,
“Have fun now
and all you want.”

Don’t be fooled,
dear friend,
it is not worth
living for passing sin.
