To Be Told

What will be said to the man
Who sees himself as pure,
Who's absolutely sure,
That his fire's burning hot.

What will be said if we call
Jesus our only teacher,
And proclaim to be a preacher,
Yet cannot love the lost?

Will our voice be heard,
As we justify a love that's grown cold?
Will we ever learn,
There's no hypocrits allowed in the shepherd's fold.
How many times will we get to be told?

What will be said if we claim
To be a shining light,
Yet refuse to lose our life;
And take another's in defence?

What will be said if we can't
Love our enemies,
Knowing that God sees,
That we barely love our friends?

Will our voice be heard,
As we justify living by the sword?
Will we ever learn,
There's no murderers allowed in the shepherd's fold?
How many times will we get to be told?

What will be said to those who have
Their fingers in their ears,
Their eyes on their carrers,
And not on the Son of God?

What will be said to the people
Who know the love of God,
That never gave a thought,
Of how much greed can cost?

Will our voice be heard,
As we justify our love of jewels and gold?
Will we ever learn,
There's no greediness allowed in the Shepard's fold?
How many times will we get to be told?
