Church attendance is way down
"The Church Is Calling You" by jaybird1
I went to church last Sunday
and sat among the few,
who came to ease their massive load
of burdens and renew
the inner faith we ever need,
I saw your empty pew,

I sat among the sinners,
the worshippers of gold,
the young, who beamed forth arrogance
and wise, but humble old.
We joined again within God's house,
his purpose to behold.

We had so much in common
by sharing in God's plan,
for weak or strong we still must use
his ever helping hand,
to guide us through the heights and depths
of life''s confusing span.

If you would ease your burdens,
what better could you do
then lay them on God's doorstep?
Please, come and start anew
In your church next Sunday morning.
There waits an empty pew.
