Once there were two fathers
In houses side by side.
Each had a little boy
The apple of his eye.
One raised his son in love and care
And made him to obey.”
He taught him from the Bible,
And each night they knelt to pray.
The other father loved his son
But had no time to spare.
And so he left his little boy
In some one else’s care.
Then when each boy became a man,
All who saw him did know,
One was raised with father’s care,
But the other grew alone.
The one became a drunkard.
He cheated and he lied.
And the other that honored God
Met an accident and died.
And so the godly father grieved,
His beloved son was gone.
And yet I wonder, of the two,
Which father lost his son?
