God-Awful


I read the Bible once or twice,
It struck me as a text lacklustred,
I turned the pages once or twice,
I feel conflicting thoughts a-flustered.

I read the Bible once or twice,
It gave me to a vicious rumour,
I turned the pages once or twice,
Did God really have no sense of humour?

I read the Bible once or twice,
Surely it can not be true,
I turned the pages once or twice,
If it’s what I believe, what can I do?

I read the Bible once or twice,
God must be a comic lord!
I turned the pages once or twice,
Are we only here because he was bored?

I read the Bible once or twice,
And on the seventh day, God slept,
I turned the pages once or twice,
And he forgot where ingenuity was kept.

I read the Bible once or twice,
It left his mind while he was in his dreams,
I turned the pages once or twice,
But, fear not! It is not how it seems.

I read the Bible once or twice,
We live still, though troubled, of course,
I turned the pages once or twice,
He gave us emotion so death would take force.

I read the Bible once or twice,
But we remain, proud by the score,
I turned the pages once or twice,
We are mankind, hear us roar!

I read the Bible once or twice,
We’re doing all that we can do,
I turned the pages once or twice,
God, my Lord, we’re coming for you…

End.

    The Bible which is the word of God should be read after you pray for the Holy Spirit to help you understand. Try it and you will find the Book so inspiring. (Report) Reply
