"Hymn" as written by and Richard Melville Hall....
Give us this day all that you showed me
The power and the glory 'til thy kingdom come

Give us this day all that you showed me,
The power and the glory 'til thy kingdom come
Give me all the story book told me,
The faith and the glory 'til thy kingdom comes

And they said that in our time,
All that's good will fall from grace
Even saints would turn their face,
In our time

And they told us that in our days,
Different words said in different ways,
Have other meaning from he who says,
In our time.

Give us this day all that you showed me,
The power and the glory 'til thy kingdom come
Give me all the story book told me,
The faith and the glory 'til thy kingdom comes

And they said that in our time,
We would reap from their legacy,
We would learn from what they had seen,
In our time.

And they told us that in our days,
We would know what was high on high,
We would follow and not defy,
In our time.

Give us this day all that you showed me,
The power and the glory 'til thy kingdom come
Give me all the story book told me,
The faith and the glory 'til thy kingdom comes

Faithless in faith
We must behold the things we see

Give us this day all that you showed me,
The power and the glory 'til thy kingdom come
Give me all the story book told me,
The faith and the glory 'til thy kingdom comes

    General CommentWhen I first heard this, I thought I'd let my Christian grandparents listen to this... Now that I've looked more closely at the lyrics... That is not going to happen.

    The 'story book' from the chorus is the Bible. The non-chorus lines are about the prophesized things that don't seem to be happening. The 'we would follow and not defy' seems to be the strongest example.

    While I can't let my grandparents hear this, at least I don't have to feel bad for liking something pro-Christian.
