10 little witnesses

stolen from hukepare


Where Do I Stand?

10 little witnesses standing in line
1 disliked the elders, then there were nine.
9 little witnesses stayed up very late
1 overslept on Sunday, then there were eight.
8 little witnesses pleasing Jehovah our Father in heaven
1 took the low road and then there were seven.
7 little witnesses chirping like chicks
1 liked rap music, then there were six.
6 little witnesses seemed very much alive
but one lost his interest then there were five.
5 little witnesses going from door to door
1 stopped to rest and then there were four.
4 little witnesses each busy as a bee
1 got his feelings hurt, then there were three.
3 little witnesses knew not what to do
1 joined the worldly scene, then there were two.
2 little witnesses, our rhyme is nearly done
differed with each other, then there was one.
1 little witness can't do much 'tis true
started a bible study then there were two.
2 earnest witnesses, each won one more
That doubled the number, then there were four.
4 sincere witnesses worked early and late
Each won another then there were eight.
8 splendid witnesses if they doubled as before
In just so many Sundays, we'd have 1,024
In this little jingle, there is a lesson true,
Even if I'm not fully aware of it I am either part of the building or
Part of the wrecking crew!
