I went to church to find the Lord, Instead I found my friends, And sat upon the pew with them And found that I was bored. I looked around at wall and spire, I listened to the Word. I thought about the day ahead And found no holy fire. I think I erred in knowing where To look to find the Lord. I sat below the lofty roof And said my prayer there, But he is not within the space To which I weekly go— Both friends and walls they merely point Beyond to holy face.
