Gods Footballer
God's footballer hears the voices of angels

Above the choir at Molineux

God's footballer stands on the doorstep

And brings the Good News of the Kingdom to come

While the crowd sings 'Rock of Ages'

The goals bring weekly wages

Yet the glory of the sports pages

Is but the worship of false idols and tempts him not



God's footballer turns on a sixpence

And brings the Great crowd to their feet in praise of him

God's footballer quotes from the Gospels

While knocking on doors in Black Country back streets

He scores goals on a Saturday

And saves souls on a Sunday

For the Lord says these are the Last Days

Prepare thyself for the Judgement yet to come



His career will be over soon

And the rituals of a Saturday afternoon

Bid him a reluctant farewell

For he knows beyond the sport lies the spiritual
