He said it, Jude
One chapter’s worth
And noble did it seem
To take up arms for doctrine’s sake
With unity the dream
So can’t you just believe like me
For long I studied firm
Quite clear the package seemingly
But you friend, make me squirm.
I know you name the name of Christ
I know you love the Cross
I know you lean on Spirit’s help
I know you suffer loss
For clinging to your closest Friend
When all the world turns sour
You trust the blood, a cleansing flood
You know forgiveness’ power.
That is enough to bind the cords
I put away my blade
I’m here for you, a Brother true
Forgive the rift pride made.
And timely this, your friendly call
To me, deluded know-it-all.
