They go to Mountain tops

for Fire and Miracles;

Move around like envoys

in Embassies of Christ

At the Synagogue you find them

in search of instant healing.


They preach the Word of Life

just like John the Baptist.

And spread the Word of Faith

in Apostolic manner.


They shun shallow living

with Methodist conviction.

And live Deeper Lives

to stay within their Covenant.


They pray to God the Father,

the Son and Holy Spirit to turn them into Winners.


Most are Pentecostal

and even Charismatic.

Some are so Celestial

and Anglican in conduct.


They go with big umbrellas

in case of Latter Rain

And would rather go for shelter

in Assemblies of God.


They claim to be the children

of Alpha and Omega

But forget to ask the Father

for grace to be Redeemed

while running around for miracles in Households of God!
