Oswaldo Guayasamin art from Pinterest

Outstretched hand, a step up, to heaven;
Pearly gates, where a name scroll unrolls;
No initials, all is laid out in plain sevens;
For this is the number, of forgiveness times;
Given with compassion, a step up, to heaven;
Roll call of grace, milk and honey to succor;
Sacrifices to that beggar man, his dignity molten;
He too functions, in wide scheme of redemption;
That long journey home, to Paradise gate, harken;
Wisdom's call, arise to generous penance;
See, the outstretched hand, a step up, to heaven;
