Who Will Hear

My plea goes on unheard when fickle men pass their drinks,
They mend their schemes and wander as the sun sets,
To whom should I give my voice
When all that hear are walls and towers
lifeless toils of the mighty...

Ears and eyes they know
when the left hand tries to hide its way
In plain sight they make their move
their thoughts loud they rise like open voices
But all that hear are walls and towers
lifeless toils of the mighty...

Our toils are cast into the common purse
for use together to toil for his kingdom
But once they fall on the feet of the gravel
Like water they evaporate, and toil is no more to be heard
But all that hear are walls and towers
lifeless toils of the mighty...

Those who stand and hunger for the way
their mouths get muffled their eyes are made blind
They cut them like a knife cuts through meat
Yet they smile and laugh when people cry out in pain
But all that hear are walls and towers
lifeless toils of the mighty...

Who will wake the masses and cure their blind eyes to see
Who will wake the masses and cure their deaf ears to hear
Who will wake the masses and cure their stone heart to feel
Who will wake the masses and cure their minds to see the truth
But all that hear are walls and towers
lifeless toils of the mighty...

Who will hear?

omigosh......she was on the phone talking to pastor whoever and she forced it out of me. if ANYTHING at all comes up because i leaked your blog web address pleaseplease im so sorry. if ANYTHING at all happens because of this you can totally blame me i was so stupd i don't know why i couldn't just keep my mouth shut. for the record, i 100% agree with your blog and what it is that you're trying to say about the leaders of our church. but apparently SOME people think the exact opposite...why can't the church leaders jut accept comments on their leadership as chances to learn instead of taking them in as insults and critism. i mean, yes critism is good in a way if you are willing to look at it properly and actually think about it. aih..just another one of those things eh? now they've gone and made me their accomplice....

Dear anonymous (whoever you are hehe),

It is ok. The blog was made for public purposes and if they found out from whatever means I cannot blame anyone for it. So you totally have my forgiveness. Although the posts that i have done comes with consequences (like finger pointing, character assassination, denying the opportunity to minister, alienation from people, just some of the things that i have been going through) but i have only time to 'prove' justice, but until then we all have to wait. I just could not believe that leaders will be bold enough to hide behind their hypocrisy in the name of God. But thanks for your comments and support.

Hopeful Theo
