God Bless The Salvos


God bless the Salvos says old Jenny Gray
For those in need they go out of their way
They feed the hungry and broken lives repair
The Salvos for all social outcasts care.

The people of the Salvation Army i admire
They helped me when my home was charred by fire
They gave me lodgings and enough to eat
And without them i know i'd be on the street.

God bless the Salvos says old Michael Bate
I was a loser whiskey was my mate
With their help i gave alcohol away
And without them i may not be here today.

God bless the salvos says Virginia Lee
God bless them for all they have done for me
I won my war with drugs and i've learnt to cope
And the Salvos gave me love and help and hope.

I've only mentioned here a grateful few
Who bless the Salvos for the work they do
God bless the Salvos and may they succeed
In their efforts in helping those in need.

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
