POEM: He showed me the way

One day a friend asked me to go to church with him

to read the Bible and pray,

And I learned there is a lot more I must do before Judgment Day.

I learned about forgiveness and loving my fellow man.

The Ten Commandments were a good place to begin

and learn how not to sin.

I prayed to the Lord to forgive me for those sins I've done,

And I'll repent for every one.

Thank you, Lord, for showing me those ways,

And that's all I can say.
