DADDY LET’S GO!


A little girl with shining eyes,

Her little face aglow,

Said, "Daddy, it is almost time

For Church......let’s go!"


They teach us there of Jesus’ love, Of how he died for all

Those who on Him call.”


Oh, no!” said Daddy, “Not today. I’ve worked hard all week; I’m going to the creek,

for there I can relax and rest,

And fishing’s fine they say.


So, run along; don’t bother me. We’ll go to Church someday.”

Months and years have passed away

But Daddy hears that plea no more -

“Let’s go to Church.” Those childish days are o’re.


And now that Daddy’s growing old, when life is almost through,

He finds some time to go to Church -

But what does Daughter do?


She says: O Daddy, not today!

I stayed up almost all night;

I’ve just got to get some sleep. Besides, I look a fright.”


Then Daddy lifts a trembling hand

To brush away the tears,

As again he hears the pleading voice

Distinctly through the years.


He sees a small girl’s shining face upturned, with eyes all aglow,

As she says, “It’s time for Church................ Please, Daddy, won’t you go?”
