Truth Hurts

We’ve all heard
How Christ came
To save us;
To tell us
Of God’s love,
And ask us
To behave.

We all know
He was then killed
Although He hurt
No-one;
But they knew,
That what He said
Was too true
For comfort.

So it’s been
Ever since
That truth hurts
And anger grows
When others see
Exactly where
We’ve gone wrong.
