The Persecuted Church

 Since the Church's earliest days
 persecution has been their lot
 this is promised in scripture
 as holy living is taught

 Jesus said to take up thy cross
 to follow Him this had to be
 for many in His day
 followed Him then did flee

 The saviour also said
 the destruction gate is wide
 many will follow it
 for few will be on His side

 His gate will be narrow
 hard it'll be to stay
 on the road to heaven's gate
 and stay on the true way

 Many have given their lives
 for the sake of righteousness
 God is worth the price
 for His own He will bless

 Whatever the road we take
 the Lord has gone before
 pointing the way ahead
 showing us His open door

 But God's people are 
 persecuted till comes the moment
 when the Lord will appear
 to remove them from earthly tent
