To simply bask in ignorance, to shy away from facts,

can masquerade as 'simple faith',
or veil our foolish acts;
and then the world will look at us,
a church so old and stale,
no longer worth a second glance,
a church beyond the pale.

Verses 2-3 follow

Tune: BETHLEHEM (also known as CLAUDIUS [Fink]);
NOEL (Sullivan)
Metre: CMD
