One does not have to be a scientist to see
How we as churches have greatly changed
Since we were cast out, three decades ago and more, by a church going wayward,
There was a time when our leaders talked
And wrote against the hymn convincingly;
When they criticized others for elevating man
By naming buildings for late benefactors.
Today we are being led to the hymn
And little memorials all our own.
What must we say? Does truth change?
Or does it stand immutable as our God.
