Did You Ever Stop … to Think?


did you ever stop to think

that it might just be possible

to condemn an obscene deed

and not regard its doer

as without hope themselves


do you think us so shallow

that we see this one thing

beyond Gods power to save

that we have so small a sight

as to condemn without hope


when your childs returned

covered by their days muck

do you not by saying “Wash!”

show you value who they are

above the filth they carry


how can you then chastise

we who share Gods salvation

with those who need His washing

you value them beneath their sin

to not see them as He desires


Do You Ever Stop ... to Think?
