Guess who wrote these lyrics

No cheating- don't copy and paste into Google. The band (it's a rock band) is enough, don't need who in the band wrote them. From 1971, and an unlikely candidate .

Have you ever thought about your soul - can it be saved?
Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay in your grave
Is God just a thought within your head or is He a part of you?
Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?

When you think about death do you lose your breath
Or do you keep your cool?
Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope
Do you think he's a fool?
Well I have seen the truth, yes I've seen the light
And I've changed my ways
And I'll be prepared when you're lonely and scared
At the end of our days

Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say
If they knew you believe in God above?
They should realize before they criticize
That God is the only way to love

Is your mind so small that you have to fall
In with the pack wherever they run
Will you still sneer when death is near
And say they may as well worship the sun?

I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ
I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced
Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe?
You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve

Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone
Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one
The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate
Or will you still jeer at all you hear?
Yes! I think it's too late.

Well that was quick! It was Iomi. When my uncle went hardcore Christian a few years back he mentioned that he got rid of all his old 'Satanic' music, like Black Sabbath. I asked him if he ever actually listened to the lyrics and pointed out this song, no good. Oh well, some lucky youngin is listening to his old vinyl somewhere .

According to wikipedia although the initial album credited it to Iommi, it was in fact written by Geezer Butler - who is a catholic.
