Onward 'Civilised Progress'

#1 Post by Marina » 4 years ago

Onward ‘Civilised Progress’ (sung to the tune of Onward Christian Soldiers)

Onward ‘civilised progress’
Marching as to war
With a humanistic mind-set
Going on before.

Past a Roman statue
Round a Persian rug
With transcendental chantings
And a loveless big group hug.

Triumph in your boastings
Of losses that you’ve gained
As you pay for bottled water
Even when it rains.


If you are not sure of the tune – you can hear it here

Hi Marina

Now what have you done to this rousing hymn?

You may have had a moment of cynicism there, but it was somewhat inspired.

Thanks for that,
Apollos

you know having been in numerous "churches" in childhood
i immediately recognized the rhythm song , LOL
Psalm 13
5:5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord's praise,
for he has been good to me.
