The Seed of Christians...

the seed of Christians is still found
on holy, sacred, ancient ground
the blood of martyrs' cries resound

but I wonder, do we hear

those whose knees n'ere did bow
to any man or golden cow
are martyred still and call us now

but I wonder, do we hear

martyrs for us still intercede
giving us all the strength we need
whether shunned by family or called to bleed

but I wonder, do we hear

their call to rise courageously
to defend our faith from heresy
to live the Truth so the blind may see

I pray we have ears to hear

Thanks much, bro, she did say,
as she turned in her
chair to walk away
from the desk where
she had too long stayed
on a Saturday afternoon.
