5-9-15 On Religion

Back of the Choir

widow Officer

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this,

To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, 

and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

James 1:27 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s vogue to say you’re not religious, yet

You don’t know what a true religion is.

Religion spells belief you don’t regret,

And turns it into action, not show biz.

A child without his parents needs your time

To sail him round the rocky cliffs of life.

Assist the lonely widow past her prime

Who cannot help herself through pain and strife.

Religion helps you set yourself apart

From all the rampant evil running wild.

To be unspotted from the world, you start

By acting just like Jesus, undefiled.

Believe all that you want, you won’t get far.

Religion is the strings on the guitar.

~~~~~~~~~~~
