Mary Had A Little Boy

Mary had a little boy,

His soul was white as snow.

He never went to Bible Class,

’Cause Mary wouldn’t go.

 

He never heard the tales of Christ,

That thrill 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

Become a dingy gray.

 

Realizing he was lost

She tried to win him back,

But now the soul that once was white

Had turned an ugly black.

 

She even started back to church,

And Bible Study too.

She begged the preacher, “Isn’t there

A thing that you can do?”

 

The preacher tried, and failed, 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 is lost,

That once was white as snow.

Bible Study would have helped.

But Mary wouldn’t go.
