Comfortable Christianity? (No Way) Comfort, convenience, Ah, luxury! Who would not want this It is a pleasant list Surely most or all would agree Nothing wrong with having A few nice things These words with a certain truth Do ring But. . . Do not let them be Your gods Here is where we must stop Do not let the blessings Come first before the Great Blessor Christianity is not For the faint of heart It has been that way From its start A gloriously beautiful Son In poverty His life was begun A horrific, tortured death Was all which He was left If it did not love Him It will not love us For this we must prepare & give Him all our trust To see us thru to our end Sacrifice, pain may follow We may lose every friend But Christ sees our struggles A glorious reward is promised If we follow thru each dark vale Spoken of in a Holy Book Which only truth does tell!
