A Sermon From The Pew In Front

By Anonymous

There’s a lesson you may learn
When the little children turn
Squarely, fairly, in their pew,
And as squarely gaze at you.
Sweet their eyes are, sweet and pure,
Modest also and demure,
Happy, innocent, sincere,
Gazing with no thought of fear.
Should the older people thus
Turn about and look at us,
Would their gaze as steady be,
Truthful, brave, and folly free?
