Once Upon A Pew!

Once upon a pew I sat
And heard the preacher ask,
"We need someone to teach a class,
Now who will take this task?"

Then God sat down beside me
there And said, "Son, that's for you."
"But, Lord, to stand before
a class Is one thing I can't do.

Now Bill would be the man to call,
There's nothing he won't do.
I'd rather hear the lesson
taught From here upon my pew."

Once upon a pew I sat
And heard the preacher ask,
"We need someone to
lead the songs,
Now who will take this task?"

Then God sat down beside me
there And said,
"Son, that's for you."
"But Lord, to sing before
a crowd Is one thing I can't do.

Now Brother King will do the job,
There's nothing he won't do.
I'd rather hear the music
played From here upon my pew."

Once upon a pew I sat And
heard the preacher ask,
"I need someone to
keep the door,
Now who will take this task?"

Then God sat down beside me
there And said, "Son, that's for you."
"But saying things to strangers,
Lord, Is one thing I can't do.

Now Tom can talk to people, Lord,
There's nothing he won't do.
I'd rather someone come to
me And greet me on the pew."

As years just seemed to pass
me by, I heard that voice no more.
Until one night I closed my eyes
And woke on heaven's shore.

'Twas four of us together
there To face eternity.
God said, "I need just three
of you To do a job for me."

"O Lord, I cried, "I'll do the job,
There's nothing I won't do."
But Jesus said, "I'm sorry,
Friend, In Heaven there's no pew."
