Does Daddy Go???

(The following poem was published in the August 2007 edition of Calvary's Stand, a publication of Calvary Baptist Church in Tunnel Hill, GA. The author's name is not listed, but it is well worth reading. This was posted on a mailing list by Bro. Rex Simcox as was in my mailbox tonight.)

Daddy had a little boy, his soul was white as snow,
He never went to Sunday School, ‘cause Daddy wouldn’t go.

He never heard the Word of God, that thrills the childish mind,
While other children went to class, this child was left behind.

As he grew from babe to youth, Dad saw to his dismay,
A soul that once was snowy white, became a dingy gray.

Realizing that his son was lost, Dad tried to win him back,
But now the soul that once was white, had turned an ugly black.

Dad even started back to church, and Bible study too,
He begged the preacher, “Isn’t there a thing that you can do?”

The preacher tried, failed, and said, “We’re just too far behind,
I tried to tell you years ago, but you paid me no mind.”

And so another soul was lost, that was once as white as snow,
Sunday School would have helped, but Daddy wouldn’t go.
