Is There A God?
Is there a god? Do you want to know?
I really don’t believe it’s so.
Is there a place called Heaven Above
Where lives this bastion of Good and Love?
“Believe in GOD! HE’s the only one!”
But tell me first. Where did HE come from?
What gave birth to this King of Kings
To whom believers kneel and sing?
“God’s always been.”, we’re always told.
“Been here forever” is the story sold.
But ‘forever’ itself has never been
Nor has this God as yet been seen.
Preachers tell us only they
Can teach us what God has to say
And interpret the Book as a preacher can
This Book of God which was writ by man.
Who’s word is it that their preaching?
Who’s lessons are these that their teaching?
It can’t be God’s for tell me when
HE was ever known to hold a pen?
What God is this who needs a man
To write in words HIS master plan?
What kind of God who knows it all
Would have a use for words at all?
Why is this God, this great creator
Such a poor communicator?
Why can’t he place within each mind
HIS message, clear and well defined?
This God who’s known in many places
Who’s Word is different to all races.
Who never do obey HIS rules
Written in their Book and read by fools.
This God for whom they march to war
And up to whom their oaths are swore.
This God can clearly have no shame.
For the millions slaughtered in HIS name.
No God of Love who was real
Would permit the pain the innocent feel
Or the horrors that haunt every parents dreams
Who’ve seen their children blown to smithereens.
Is there a God? Do you want to know?
There is one thing and I’ll tell you so.
If there was a God and he allowed such sin.
I surely would not follow HIM.
