DOUBTING THOMAS






Where would we be without doubting Thomas,
The most important person in the book,
Written in to take our doubting from us,
Refusing to believe till he could look -
As we all would do, were we in his shoes.
For doubting Tom's the person in the street,
Who won't believe in anything you choose.
"I'll see those hands," he says. "And now the feet."
And, having posed the questions we would pose,
And made the tests that anyone would make,
Announces that it's true, that Christ arose:
"I've seen and felt the wounds. There's no mistake."
No-one doubts what doubting Thomas stated.
Doubtless, that was why he was created.
