When the Dollar Rules the PBlpit ana, .v;v,uurea uie.ien.. In this world o7flls and fashion, JtchuT JV , . And the trade-mark of religion Is the classic dollar sign, There's a rule that never faileth. And you'll always find it true , vnen tne uoiiar rules the pulpit, Theft the Devil rules the pew. There may be a heap of singing, And an awful sight of prayer. ' And the sermon may be answered With an "Amen!" here and there; But as sure as Joe's a Dutchman, Or old Shylock was a Jew , . When, the Dollar rules the pulpit, Then the Devil rules the pew. When the money gets to talking, And the Master's voice is still, And the preacher swaps a, sermon For a twenty dollar bill, That's the time old Mister ? Satan Gets the churches in . a stew- When .the dollar rules the pulpit, And the Devil rules the pew. When religion goes a-begging, And the Bible is. forgot,.. ,r And the preacher preachesnothing 'Only scientific rot, , Then the faithful old believers, They are getting mighty , few When the Dollar rules the pulpit And the Devil rules the. pew. .
