Is This The Church

Is This The Church?

They fought to see
Who could build
A more beautiful building
Than all the rest.

All of the while
People still died
Out on the streets
And they all wondered why.

Velvet cloth covered
Their well made seats
While the poor and hungry
Had nothing to eat.

Gold appointments
Covered their doors
While the homeless slept
On cold bare floors.

They stayed safe in their buildings
And thought themselves wise
So they never heard
The anguished cries.

They had programs and meetings
And talked about what to do.
They became so busy
They forgot me and you.

Jesus was mentioned
But not to offend.
Losing donations
Would mean the end.

Please find me a ‘church’
Who cares for the lost
Who’ll go out into the streets
And never care about the cost.
