I was never a very good _____

I was never a very good Presbyterian
Nor a very good Baptist
I was never a very good Methodist
I attended a Catholic church once
   And was not a very good Catholic
I was never a very good Lutheran
I tried reading the Book of Mormon
   But was never a very good Mormon
I attended some Wiccan ceremonies
   But I was never a very good Wiccan
I have chanted
   But I was never a very good Buddhist

I have seen fairies
Spoken to the Great Spirit, o’ Maker of Life
Drawn down the moon
Worshiped the Sun
Praised the Mother
Oh Blessed Be!
I have been a trespasser
   And a debtor
I have taken communion
   The Body and The Blood
But I was never a very good believer

But, in all these things, the Spirit in me
   Has been the best that I can be.
