stained glass and gospel choir
On The Right Side Of God
Doug Tanoury

At the Second Baptist Church
Black angels in stained-glass windows
Guard the front entrance

And I think that God so loves diversity
That Cherubim of color
Wearing golden garb
Sing Gospel that makes the Saints
Slap their sacred knees
And I know Seraphim sing the
Blues so plaintive and compelling that
Bare feet that bear the wounds of nails
Tap the holy floors of heaven

In perfect time with the rhythm
And every Saint and Martyr sways
On the right side of God
