WHAT ELSE DO THEY DO
Each one of us has a guardian Angel
A POEM IN CLOSING CALLED "REVERENCE"
I sat in church on the Sabbath day,
The people talked as loud
And showed as little reverence
As any wordly crowd.
Again I sat in that same church
But all was quiet now,
For in a casket up in front
Lay one with pallid brow.
And then I thought, how strange it is
That we so oft accord
More reverence to a man who's dead
Than to our living Lord.
If we could see with mortal eye
Bright angels there each day,
Our words would cease, then all could hear
What Jesus had to say.
It has been said that fools rush in
Where angels fear to tread;
We say we come to worship God,
And visit friends instead.
Oh, why not show more reverence
In this, Gods house of prayer,
And try to act as Christians should
When we assemble there.
