First Line: And who are these poor souls who in your name
Last Line: Would judge the nations by their garbled truth.
Subject(s): Blindness; Religion; Visually Handicapped; Theology


And who are these poor souls who in your name
Malign your spirit with their raucous cries?
They laud their loyalty unto the skies
And hide their hate within your sacred fame.
If these are yours, O Spirit without guile --
These selfish souls who by their narrow creed
Would bind a world, who with a hallowed greed
Would bar from heaven their foes -- how reconcile
Their petty notions with those words of grace
Divinely uttered, by the shining sea?
You glimpsed the earth from little Galilee;
You loved all men, although a Jew by race.
Yet these blind guides -- your followers, forsooth! --
Would judge the nations by their garbled truth.
