Religion Poem: The Teacher

The teacher in a Sunday school has opportunities galore

To witness for our savior, Could we really ask for more?

Now listen to this story, You’ll agree I’m sure it’s sad

For this story’s about a teacher and a poor little lad

The teacher had just made the point, It came from John 3: 16

That Jesus died for everyone both the good also the mean
The child showed so much interest, Tears welled up in his eyes

So the teacher kept him after class to try to find out why

The child then told this story; My dad treats me so bad

And when I go to Sunday School it seems to make him mad

My mother died when I was three and I don’t remember much
Except the way she held me, I really loved her touch

You see it’s really been a while since someone cared for me

The way you say that Jesus did, Yes Mam I sure believe

And the lady brushed away her tears and her Bible she did reach

For God had surely rewarded her for she had someone to teach
