A CHILD’S WORDS — Author Unknown

A little girl with shining eyes, her little face aglow, Said, “Daddy, it is almost time for Bible Class. Let’s go! They teach us there of Jesus’ love, of how He died for all, Upon the cruel cross to save those who on Him will call.” “Oh, no,” said Daddy, “not today. I’ve worked hard all the week, And I must have one day of rest. I’m going to the creek. For there I can relax and rest, and fishing’s fine, they say. So run along, don’t bother me. We’ll go to church some day.” Months and years have passed away; Daddy hears the plea no more. “Let’s go to Bible Class;” those childhood days are o’er. And now that Daddy’s growing old, when life is almost through, He finds the time to go to church, but what does daughter do? She says, “Oh, Daddy, not today. I stayed up all last night. And I’ve just got to have some sleep; besides, I look a fright.” Then Daddy lifts a trembling hand to brush away the tears, As again he hears the pleading voice distinctly through the years. He sees a small girl’s shining face, upturned with eye’s aglow, She says, “It’s time for Bible Class. Please, Daddy, won’t you go?”
