RHYMES AND REASONS
Persecution Past and Present
What do Christians in America have to look forward to?

Christians soon will pay a price
to embrace a “one way” message
based in Jesus’ sacrifice.
There’s a move afoot among us
to suggest each faith’s the same.
And while you can say “God bless you,”
don’t you dare use Jesus’ name.
If you do you may be branded
as a bigot lacking worth.
You can sing God bless our nation,
just don’t say He came to earth.
As it was it shall again be,
when the faithful will be jeered
just for following core values
that the world considers weird.
What is dark will grow much darker.
We’ll be bruised, abused, and scarred.
But although we're scoffed or martyred,
we will shine like distant stars.
Though new laws may nix our freedoms
and negate the Source of life,
He whose name incites division
will stand with us in the strife.
