Tales from a Christian University

Chapel is near,
My heart embraces God,
Ready for worship,
I lift my voice in song.

On my left I see those
With hands lifted high,
Mirroring my love
For our creator and maker.

On this side
We are a university of God.
But on my left
There’s a different story.

I see students on phones,
Too absorbed to realize
The presence of God
That envelopes this room.

Ignoring their lover,
Finding peace in possessions,
I wonder how it is
They act so well as my leaders.

Yes officers and seniors,
Those supposed to set the bar,
Lower it instead,
As the freshmen take over.

Where is our love
For the maker of our class?
Why ignore the One
Who brings our future?

Thirty minutes a day
Is all that we ask.
Please worship in chapel.
Your cell phones can wait.
