|Marcus - White, Sinful Church|
|The Church of God on Earth to-day|
Is scandal of the King;
It teaches men to sing and pray
For golden wealth to bring.
It sanctifies the cause of war,
And winks at evil deeds;
It sends its "saints" and men, afar,
To preach the victor's creeds.
The Blacks and Weaker Sets of Men
Are robbed and killed galore;
The Church looks o'er Commandments ten,
As tyrants kill some more.
The lands that God gave men to dwell
Are taken by the sword
As preachers go, their creeds to sell,
To those who heed their word.
Almighty God looks down on Earth
To see the Church in sin,
And so we hope for Cleansing Birth,
To let the Master in.
And when the Gentle Jesus leads,
The Priests and Pastors, too,
Shall see the growth of harvest seeds
That blend with every hue.
