Hold the Old Faith

December 3, 2010

Hold the old faith
and let it not go
nor wander in ways
that lead down below.
Keep to the path
the saints loved to tread.
Turn not aside
to haunts of the dead.
Strait is the way
and narrow the gate.
Recognize this
before it’s too late.
Holiness dwells
not under all roofs.
Under some robes
one finds devil’s hooves.
Honor the Cross
on which the Lord died.
All other signs
are emblems of pride.
