The Cross And The Crucible (Pallas)

In the beginning there was darkness And in the darkness there was fear And fear gave birth to God Whose rule was harsh but clear But reason led to questioning and God became a man He retreated to the skies Though some began a search to comprehend the universe The men of God screamed out - you must not question why So in towers and in attics Pure reason took its course In hiding from the so-called holy man Who'd wipe it out by force Then emerging from the shadows with triumph in their eyes Came the keepers of the flame As the iron hand of science took revenge upon the pious They wondered if the world they knew could ever be the same How can these mighty opponents be reconciled? The cross and the crucible fight for our souls In the here and the now and the after-life Mortal man can't understand the mind of God You need us to guide you to the glory of the Lord Creation's not a toy for man to prise apart God provides the spark that puts the questions in your heart He holds all the answers, lead you from the dark He holds all the answers - do not question
