Jesus Goes to Church

by | Jun 11, 1997 | Judging, Poem

Jesus came to church, dressed in rags today
No one recognized him, they told him “Go away”
They were oh, so worried, of what the town might wonder
And in anxiety and fear, they pulled their biggest blunder!

“Hide this man in the back, and pray the guests won’t see”
“Jesus, Jesus”, they called out, “Lord, hear our plea”
“The millionaire from town is here, and now this bum is too”
“Help us, help us, help us Lord, what ever shall we do?”

And as they led sweet Jesus, by the hand, way to the back
I saw a tear fall from his eye, for those now off the track
He came to search the hearts, you see, of those now in the pews
And in his heart he wept aloud, at how they spread “GOOD NEWS”!

No one said a word to Jesus, not one, all day long
They gathered round the millionaire, and helped him learn a song
And as they sang and raised their hands, praising King and Lord
Jesus sat there crying, at how he’d been ignored!
