O giliw at ginintuan kong bayan, Sa mga galamay ng may burdang hinagpis Ay ‘di patitinag ang katapatan kong sayo’y itinatangis Panaghoy ko’y ‘wag sanang lisanin Ang pangako nating hanggang sa dulo’y mananatili.
Hindi man sa ngayon Ang paggawad ng medalyang kailanma’y hindi mangangalawang, Ako’y magtitiis sa muling paglipad Ng kalapating pilit na itinatali’t ikinakahon Sa mga islang tanging anino na lamang ang kasarinlan.
Kung mamarapatin lang ng may Likha Na ako’y tupukin na lamang ng apoy na hindi nakasusunog At ako’y ayain sa hardin nang walang kamalayan Kundi pagpuri sa Kanyang kagandahan. Ngunit kailanma’y hindi ako mangingimasok Sa kung anumang inilatag sa aking harapan.
Gustong lumuha ng dugo Ng aking mga matang may iisang tinitingnan. Sa mga kamay Niya’y Hahayaan ko na lamang na dumungis ang mga butil At ang Kanyang pagkalinga’y Magsilbing panlaman-tiyan.
Kung makararating man sa lahat ng mga pinili Na ang aking pananatili’y hindi pansarili lamang Kundi ito’y aking pagpasyang piliin pa rin Ang tahanan bagamat ito’y pinagtaksilan ng karamihan.
Sa mga pulong walang kapanatagan At walang kapaliwanagan ang may kapangyarihan, Ay naniniwala akong hindi paglisan ang solusyon. At kung takot at pangamba ang kanilang mga naging dahilan, Ay hindi ko kokonsintihin Ang puso kong anumang oras Ay kayang piliin na rin ang paglisan.
the trees are shedding their leaves again: another summer is over. the Christians are praising their Maker again, but not the disconsolate plover: i hear him berate the fate of his mate; he claims God is no body’s lover.

Christians are concerned with who is and isn’t saved Maybe they should focus on the road they pave If they really want to know why people run away While they persecute those who are atheist or gay They should try to relate To the people they hate But their emotions break When their notions deflate
No free thought Or love Just breed a lot And shove The meek you’re supposed to admire Because they’re not in the capitalist attire Of a suit and tie to show that they’re higher The weak are only interested in being consumerist buyers Even if they have to team up with holocaust deniers Who are seeking to ignite funeral pyres It doesn’t matter how many bodies are on fire As long as their own situation isn’t dire
They say ignorance is bliss Following Jesus through the mist But they clench their fist Once they’re really ****** There must’ve been a lesson missed Like the ones involving politics Yet they add their hollow wit To the country’s rhetoric While they’re not ahead of it
Christianity develops a nasty reputation Of being closed minded Because all they add to the conversation Is that they can’t find it No matter how much they’re reminded They walk around like they’re blinded To not see what’s unclean Like Christians who are viciously mean Tearing society apart at the seams Missed by the blindfolded team Following signs as old as He While ignoring history
I isolate myself in a community So I can act with impunity Once nothing gets through to me I try to get the Jews to see Their blasphemy Unattractively
Not wanting to follow these roads The congregation is leaving in droves Searching for more peaceful groves Or thoughtful treasure troves Where they can follow the flow Of not being told what to know
Christians must stop imposing their will They must stop the self righteous kills And pushing counterproductive bills And take the red pill Of peace be still To abandon royal shills Who sell toil filled Oil drills To follow Jesus’ path Not enacting God’s wrath By using subtractive math That makes Satan laugh
to all the claiming to be Christians using Gods name as a reason for your hatred
where is your God how can you say that God is love but claim that you hate in his name how you say God doesn't make mistakes but hate people who are different
I think you need to read that scripture again John 8:7 "he who is without sin cast the first stone" matthew 7:1 "condemn not and you shall not be condemned romans 13:10 "Love does no harm to thy neighbor therefore love is the fulfillment of the law" 1 John 2:9 "anyone who claims to be in the light but still hates a brother or sister is in the dark" proverbs 10:12 "love covers all sin"
This is my plea; this is MY submission So I petition you to stay away from vain tradition It’s rudimentary my dear Christians! Follow Jesus not man, don’t listen to magicians
The inscription was handwritten on my heart Its perfection has forever been positioned Jesus was not a politician, so why place restrictions? Where’s the distinction?
This isn’t a competition There’s only the affliction of a life spent in derision The road less traveled can be protection, reflection, and salvation; This is my position: You can put a gun to my head wish me dead and I still won’t regret my decision - to follow Jesus!
Who among you Here today haven't given his life to Christ Let him today Take off his flesh Lie it in this coffin Let him today Drop it six ft down Let him today Pour sand on that dead flesh Sprinkle holiness on his sinful deeds Let him today Go and Sin no more
