Christians... Shame on you!
With Love and Kindness did He draw us.

Pride...before the Fall!

I... walk a path
straight and tall
As sin abounds
I am appalled

Sinners grab and they beg
they touch my clothes
But I push them down
For iniquity I loathe

I show them the error
of their evil way
I quote the wages
their sin will pay

...As time goes on...

I'm steady on my path
Though it's become a bit curved and frayed
I'm still better than them
Even on an abrupt downgrade

They're yet worse than I
They'll never ever learn
to be 'HUMBLE' like ‘ME’
And praises to earn

For I sing in the choir
I usher in the aisles
I‘m clean~starched~and pressed
NO sin - doth ‘ME’ - defile

...With the progression of time...

I continue eagerly on my path
so what... it's crooked and looped
let them slander ~ accuse ~ and say to me
to their level I have finally stooped

they think its me~but I know its them
They just don’t understand
the devil's trying hard to get me
because I'm the better man (woman)

But surely I have taught them well
seems some of 'them' comprehend
‘Cause now we're eye~to~eye
They even call me friend

But I'll remain HUMBLE...
And won't forget to pray
that those sinners COMPLETELY see
the sins that block their way!!!
