Carved Images [Carved Images]

No, I won’t bow to your carved images!
Can they heal the sick or give life?
They will turn soot when the Most High rages!
No! I won’t bow to your carved images!

Unto different gods, you savages
Hammer on drums and blast on fifes;
You chant foul songs- your elders and sages,
And sacrifice babes with your knives!

No! I won’t bow! To your carved images:
Can they heal the sick or give life?
Set me aflame in cruellest of cages,
I will not bow to your carved images!
