November 1987


they praise your name

and profane it too

to say: “God be praised!”

on one hand

and to curse Him

on the other

seems strange

two faces of man

at odds with each other


can God be praised

or cursed

by such as these

where does the line divide

a careless attitude

from one of love


They Praise Your Name
