Little Boy

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 open 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.

Dad even started back to church
And Bible study, too;
He begged the pastor, "Isn't there
A thing that you can do?"

The preacher tried and tried, and said,
"We're just too far behind;
I tried to tell you years ago,
But you would pay no mind."

And so another soul was lost,
That once was white as snow;
Sunday school sure would have helped,
But Daddy wouldn't go.
