She stood before the Altar
And, oh, how she did preen
Her chest puffed up in grandeur
And her eyes began to gleam!
Today was hers to offer worship
Today was hers to give praise
To the God of All Grace - He's Glorious
And that's when she forgot her true place!
She lifted her hand - such drama!
She pitched her head - such poise!
She raised her voice - quite effectively!
And then she started to make ... real noise!
No broken, contrite spirit
No penitential heart
This was an arrogant spirit
Believing themselves the Lark!
No love for God displaying
No thanks for Grace bestowed
No display of humility
Just look at me! Aren't I wonderful?!
Please! Enjoy ... the Show!?
