The Perfect Church

I think that I shall never see

A church that’s all it ought to be;

A church that has no empty pews,

Whose preacher never has the blues;

A church whose deacons always “deke”

And none is proud but all are meek;

Where gossips never peddle lies

Or make complaints or criticize;

Where all are always sweet and kind

And all to other’s faults are blind.

Such perfect churches there may be,

But none of them are known to me.

But still we’ll work, and pray and plan

To make our church the best we can!

If you could find the perfect church,

Without one fault or smear,

For goodness sake, don’t join that church

You’d spoil the atmosphere.

If you should find the perfect church,

Then don’t you ever dare

To tread upon such holy ground,

You’d be a misfit there

But since no perfect church exists, made of imperfect men,

Then let’s cease looking for that church and love the one we’re in

Of course it’s not a perfect church, that’s simple to discern

But you and I and all of us could cause the tide to turn.
