At Church…

On Sundays, when in church you sit,
Is there a chance you’re a hypocrite?

You hear the preacher say again,
“Give to the needy,” and you say, “Amen”

But on Monday the beggar on the street
Is someone you don’t care to meet.

Do you reverently bow your head
And partake of the wine and of the bread

Then spend the rest of your whole day
Seeing frivolous videos play?

You know that heaven and earth are ruled
By Almighty God who can’t be fooled;

So do not think hypocrites will be
Seated in heaven at His knee;

Instead you’ll receive what is deserved
A special place, for you reserved.
