Priests and Councillors by Thabang Ngoma

[tab id=1]The Church has a far greater obligation
Than the Priest running a profitable congregation
And the Councillor seeking re-election
To uplift the communities and build a strong nation

The Churches are far more powerful and numerous
Than the corruptors who twice a decade ridicule us
Procrastinating in the potholes of the road to progress
God shouldn’t also be a candidate on a ballot at the polls

We praise God through and, in the name of a Pastor
Choose a government to ‘Party’ instead of fulfilling a manifesto
The Bible hasn’t changed for 2000 years, but still we moralise
And He hasn’t failed us yet, are we losing patience?[/tab]
