Some People Worship


Some people worship the fiery sun
And some the crescent moon
Some people worship the stars above
But God I worship you

Some people worship dragons
And some hand carved statues
Some people worship the devil
But God I worship you

You created the heavens above
The earth with color of every hue
Then in your image you made man
God I worship you

Some people worship their president
And some their nation too
Some people worship themselves
But God I worship You!

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
