The blind man called and called out loud,

Nor would he be hushed by the crowd.

Jesus was passing by his way,

Going through town His final day.

Good sight beats being quietly proud.

If men be good, governments cannot be bad.


He that lives to live forever, never fears dying.


Humility seeks not the last word not the first place.

The Savior had gone to His place of prayer;

A garden, cool, serene,

But Judas figured he’d find Him there,

Someday life as for years we have known it,

Will all be gone in the twinkling of an eye,

The seed will grow just where we’ve sown it,

As a man liveth, so shall he die.
