The Hard Pew

The Hard Pew 

By Maurie Nord


Now, Jesus, He told them the truth

“This is all that I’m askin’ of  you

Trust in me people and not in a steeple”

We know this but they were confused


They still are  confused today

The windows are blurred and stained

Saints and angels are praised

Above Him who was raised

From the dead and ascended again

He never said pay a tithe

Or you cannot be one of mine

“I want your heart

And that is the start

And I’ll deal with the Rest in time

So hard they have fashioned  the pew

From heartless oak they have hewn

But my message remains

It is always the same

Come in faith and…

I’ll receive you”

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
