Mary had a little boy
His soul was white as snow
He never went to Sunday school
‘Cause Mary wouldn’t go
He never heard the love of Christ
That thrilled the childish mind
While other children went to class
This child was left behind
And as he grew from babe to youth
She saw to her dismay
A soul that once was snowy white
Had turned an ugly grey
Realizing he was lost
She tried to win him back
But now the soul that once was white
Had turned on Christ his back
She even started back to church
And Sunday School, too
She begged the preacher, “Isn’t there
A thing that we can do?”
The preacher tried and failed and said
“We’re just to far behind
I tried to tell you years ago
But you would pay no mind.”
And so another soul is lost
That was as white as snow
Sunday School would have helped
But Mary wouldn’t go.
Come on parents, it’s time to give God a chance!
