Church Upon a Hill



CHURCH UPON A HILL

 

Church Upon a Hill

 

His old and shabby clothing

Revealed a strong determined will

With shaky legs and tattered Bible

He'd go to the church upon the hill.

 

T'was just a crooked little building

In a state of needed repair

But, it didn't really matter much

Come Sunday, he'd be there.

 

Taking his place at the broken down pulpit

He preached about heaven and hell

Thumbing through the yellowing pages

Of the book he know so well.

 

Looking over the empty wooden pews

Each Sunday would bring more pain

He'd pray for a congregation

But, nobody ever came.

 

He knew his days were numbered

One day he felt gravely ill

But, he took his Bible with faultering steps

To the church upon the hill.

 

Perhaps, just this one Sunday

They would come to hear him speak

But, with tear-filled eyes, he realized

With them, he'd never meet.

 

He preached a wonderful sermon

To a room so empty and still

Then, he died there at the altar

In the church upon the hill.

 

A simple funeral was provided

Yes, nobody even came

To pay regards or last respects

To the preacher with no name.

 

***epilogue***

 

But, little did the people know

The end of time was near

When Jesus came on judgment day

They ran around in fear.

 

"Oh Jesus, you must save us

Our hearts have been sincere"

But, Jesus turned away from them

Their cries, he did not hear.

 

He knew their tongues were full of lies

Their soul, he could not heal

For, he was the man who preached and died

In the church upon the hill.
