Christ’s Bride in Baghdad

The persecution of Christians in Iraq has only just begun

It seems they’re bombing Christians now.
God helps us! Help them! Holy cow!
In Baghdad those who follow Christ
are symbols of the West.
They’re viewed as just extensions of
one nation with its hawks and doves.
And since they are it’s likely more
will be put to the test.

The Church is not that prevalent
where Islam’s made its major dent.
But where the faithful worship Christ,
His cross can still be found.
Though homemade bombs and hand grenades
must give them cause to be afraid,
the Bride of One they call their Groom
will worship underground
