There but for the grace of God

"There 
but 
for 
the 
grace 
of 
God 
go 
I" 
I 
heard 
them 
say,then 
they 
pass 
an 
addict 
begging 
on 
the 
street 
and 
turn 
away,
They 
call 
themselves 
Gods 
children 
and 
through 
Gods 
land 
they 
roam,but 
the 
homeless 
dont 
get 
charity,why?
cause 
charity 
begins  
at 
home,
So 
much 
for 
Christian 
values 
may's 
well 
leave 
them 
on 
the 
shelf,they'll 
tell 
you 
God 
will 
only 
help 
the 
man 
who 
helps 
himself,

There 
but 
for 
the 
grace 
of 
God 
go 
I 
and 
aint 
it 
so,no 
point 
in 
asking 
for 
their 
help 
they'll 
only 
tell 
you 
no,
They 
congregate 
on 
Sundays 
and 
their 
sermons 
they 
do 
teach,its 
time 
that 
someone 
told 
them 
they 
should 
practice 
what 
they 
preach,
Hypocrisy 
comes 
from 
all  
sides 
inside 
rage 
does 
errupt,as 
I 
think 
of 
the 
Catholic 
church 
so 
false 
and 
so 
corrupt,

There 
but 
for 
the 
grace 
of 
God 
go 
I 
its 
all 
a 
farce,your 
word 
it 
just 
dont 
mean 
a 
thing 
youre 
talking 
through 
your 
ass,
Theres  
nothing 
that 
Id 
like 
more 
than 
for 
us 
to 
both 
agree,that 
there 
just 
aint 
a 
hope 
in 
Hell 
youll 
ever 
convert 
me,
So 
there 
but 
for 
the 
grace 
of 
God 
go 
I 
and 
aint 
it 
true,dont 
think 
that 
youre 
above 
it 
for 
someday 
that 
could 
be 
you.
