If God Went On Strike


How good it is that God above
has never gone on strike
because He was not treated fair
in things He didn't like


If only once He 'd give up and said
That' s it ! I ' m through !
I've had enough of those on earth
So this is what I'll do


I ' l l give my order to the sun
cut off the heat supply !
To the moon, give no more light
and run the ocean dry !


Then just to make things really tough
and put the pressure on
Turn off the vital oxygen
until every breath is gone !


You know He would be justified
if fair was the game
For no one has been abused
or met with more disclaim


Then God, and yet He carries on
supplying you and me
with all the favors of His grace
and everything for free


Men say they want a better deal
and so on strike they go
but what a deal we've given God
to whom all things we owe


We don ' t care whom we hurt
to gain the things we like
but what a mess we ' d all be in
If God Should Go On Strike

Author Known To God



He can turn the tides and calm the angry sea
He alone decides who writes a symphony
He lights every star that makes the darkness bright
He keeps watch all through each long and lonely night

He still finds the time to hear a child's first prayer
Saint or sinner calls and always finds him there
Though it makes him sad to see the way we live
He'll always say "I forgive"

He can touch a tree and turn the leaves to gold
He knows every lie that you and I have told
Though it makes him sad to see the way we live
He'll always say "I forgive"

I forgive
