Believe

.

"Believe!" I hear the masses call.

"Trust in yourself! For then will all

Your doubts and fears be overcome.

And humanity be one!"

.

"Believe!" I hear the papal cry

"Trust the Church or else you die.

Trust the priest and let thy mind

Follow sweetly. Faith is blind."

.

"Believe!" I hear the doctor say.

"You need the drugs for which you pay

The cure is all assured. Be strong!

Our medicine is never wrong."

.

"Believe!" I see the teacher smile

"Sex-Ed these days is quite worthwhile.

And we must demand compliance

To teach Darwin as a science."

.

"Believe!" I hear the preacher shout

"Love is what it's all about!

The answer to our every wrong

Is to find out we belong."

.

"Believe!" The counselor assures

"For trust can open many doors.

Believe your family will give

The love and worth wherewith to live."

.

"Believe?" Must I again allow

The lie? The taste is bitter now.

Thus I find all faith is gone

In what I once relied upon.

.

"Believe!" This Voice is quiet: still.

A gentle beckoning of will

To trust. Not man, nor man's device

But in perfected Jesus Christ.

.

"Believe!" In Him, and in His Name

For He forever is the same.

Thus we joy as we profess

In our God of Righteousness.
