Don't go blaming the Church for your pain

More cause to blame the fire for your cold

Which can only be if the fire is not

Pain is not a thing to hold and treasure

you hold tight that which kills you

Don't let its shadow excuse your own

which stands as real though sun be dimmed


The Church will not harm you but cure

it is your sole recourse for wholeness

one place of all on Earth you are made well

Don't let those whose unclaimed salvation

whose deeds give lie to all they claim

give you excuse to lose you yours

Come meet your God, let yourself be healed


Don't go Blaming the Church for Your Pain
