The Love Of Money~by Neil Perry


 

 

The Love Of Money

The love of money is the root of evil,
By loving it we serve the devil –
An hate all things of rightenous –
As it becomes a god to us –
An fall down on our knees to it
With all the hope of gaining it,
We prove the devil is our friend
And sell our soul for what he’ll lend,
Yet, he’ll expect a heavy price
For our vain hope and sacrifice,
He’ll rob the heart of gentleness
And plant instead cold nastiness
With unconcern for suffering;
As he becomes our Lord and King;
He’ll show us that in all we’ll do
He’ll try to make our dreams come true,
By helping feed our selfishness
He’ll build in us false happiness,
For serving money is the art
In which the devil gains the heart,
And dominates with thrilling blindness
To lead us on to emptyness.
