GOD IS GOOD

PAT HUNT

God is good to us
no doubt about it
we are at ease in Zion
quite comfortable
thanks to God and Maalox
Cadillac and magnavox

And God is good to the leper
no doubt about it
he has one finger less than yesterday
but he can still count his blessings
on his toes…he can even crawl
to communion today in Calcutta
and the lack of a nose on his face
does not disfigure worship
or make faith unclean
often he hears the word better
with one remnant ear
than we hear with two
white but not with whitewash
he has salvation
what more does he need?

And God is good to the Chinese pastor
no doubt about it
we envy his prayer life
twelve years in solitary refinement
in a Chinese cell to pray
the only breaks in his prayer time
are the blows
that have already broken his knees
permanently to a kneel

God is good to us
No doubt about it
we are at ease in Zion
quite comfortable
thanks be to God and jacuzzi
foreign trade and diners club
we are good to ourselves too

The have-nots are everywhere. And making a mockery of the reality of the kingdom are churches filled mostly with haves….not using what they have to raise the standards of the have-nots.
