6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

In country, town or city

Some people can be found

Who spend their lives in grumbling

At ev’rything around;

O yes, they always grumble,

No matter what we say,

For these are chronic grumblers

And they grumble night and day.

They grumble when it’s raining,

They grumble when it’s dry,

And if the crops are failing,

They grumble and they sigh;

They grumble at low prices

And grumble when they’re high,

They grumble all the year ’round

And they grumble till they die.

They grumble at the preacher,

They grumble at his prayer,

They grumble at his preaching,

They grumble ev’rywhere;

They grumble at God’s people

And say ’tis all display:

But holy folks don’t grumble,

They have only time to pray.
