Yesteryear, the bells chimed
and we went to worship God.
He loved, He cared, He was proud,
but then it all got flawed.
It was no longer about a love for all,
it was about being right in the eyes of man.
Shots were fired, men fell down,
the line was in the sand.
But if there’s anything I’ve learnt,
it’s that sand is a weak foundation.
We must climb to the sturdy mountaintop
to declare true proclamation.
So let’s go back and remember
the basics that made us strong,
for it’s when man’s pride becomes involved
when man becomes wrong.
