"Paint me on top of your prosperity;
say that I am your foundation.
Market me as your mascot;
sanctify your greed with my name.
Sell me as the way to bring wealth;
use my name to bring profit.
Make me your trademark;
use me to sell your nation's dream.
Profess the doctrine of atonement
but don't teach God's commands.
Make prosperity the bottom line
instead of making Christlike disciples.
I will give you success and prosperity.
Just as Constantine triumphed
with the cross painted on army shields,
I will bring you what you desire.
Paint me on your economy!
Make the nations drink deeply!
Drink and have your fill!"
