He, She or It ?

Why do those of faith refer to God as "He"?
What makes them certain "He" ain't "She"?
In place of gender, why not "It"
Probably 'cause they don't feel "It' is" fit

Most of them would dismiss as rubbage
That man was made in a female image
And you know they wouldn't be enthralled
To accept it was "It" who made us all

Philosophically, then, what can they do
To ascertain what's truly true?
Should it be "He", "She" or "It" to whom they pray
Or will just plain "God" suffice to get them through each day
