Upon Yourself

There you see, He comes a'knocking,
Wind is blowing, house a'rocking.
To know! To know what parcel He brings,
Would entice the greatest of kings.
His walk is strong, His stride is sure,
That's all just part of the allure.
He brings sight, and knowledge, and truth,
Will you follow, at His forsooth?
His path looks easy, His burden light,
But His way is darkness, and evil delight.
You know His name, this much is true,
His name is Death, He comes for you.
