Go lay the word upon the wind
and pray that God His wisdom send
to stir the minds of those who teach,
to melt the heart and heal the breach.
With humble heart man wouldn't stray,
with teachable mind, learn the way;
fulfill the purpose for his life,
then put away all grief and strife.
Yet they still war and stoke the fire
of human nature's ill desire.
For greed and gain the train they ride
that kills the soul with hidden pride.
Will change e'er come to tarnished man,
restore him to when time began?
Lived he and Eve before the lie,
deceitful words - they wouldn't die.
A lump of clay, 'immortal soul'?
A twisted being gains control.
Now he directs the minds of men
until the Christ has come again.
