by Paul Mayes Jamar
As bright as the sun On a clear summer’s day Stands my Jesus, God’s Son, Emperor of the Godly way. So clean and pure of heart, And wise beyond man’s thoughts, Jesus, the sheep and goats He parts, As righteous Judge, He is our boss. He leads us to the green pastures, And water brooks in the desert, Of this evil world, cries out our pastors, Ask Jesus to save you from hurt. Along with judgement to damnation, In an even worse hell that’s on fire, With continual torment, not a vacation, Cry out to Jesus before you expire. Then God’s glory we shall behold, As eternity rolls along in Paradise. I believe in faith, for the Bible has told Me of such things, and I choose to be wise.
