Suffer The Children



Tell of h*** and torment. You must be born-again.
Tell of blazing ferment.
Suffer the children.

Tell of h*** and bashing. You must be born again.
Tell of toothy gnashing.
Suffer the children.

Tell of h*** and anguish. You must be born-again.
Tell of endless languish.
Suffer the children.

Tell of h*** and starkness. You must be born-again.
Tell of outer darkness.
Suffer the children.

Tell of h*** and fury. You must be born-again.
Tell of the Last Jury.
Suffer the children.

Tell of h*** and Glory. You must be born-again.
Tell of "hunky-dory."
Suffer the children.
