I met a man the other day,
His clothing was so fine,
His smile was quite infectious,
And his manner warm and kind.
He said that he had been to schools,
Of great import and stature.
He said he'd studied all the laws,
Of Mankind and of Nature.
He spoke as though he knew for sure,
The destiny of Man;
But then he said to my dismay,
"There is no God or plan."
He said his schools had taught him that,
There is but one conclusion,
The law of all creation just,
Goes back to evolution.
I thank my God in Heaven now,
That I was lowly born,
And never went away to school,
And learned to laugh and scorn,
The One who always loved me most,
And gave me all I need.
Lord, let me stay the way I am,
That I may never lead,
The kind of life,
This man has lived,
And share his destiny.
"IF ANYONE PUBLICLY ACKNOWLEDGES ME AS HIS FRIEND, I WILL OPENLY ACKNOWLEDGE HIM BEFORE MY FATHER IN HEAVEN; BUT IF ANYONE PUBLICLY DENIES ME, I WILL DENY HIM BEFORE MY FATHER IN HEAVEN."
