“X” has a God-Given,

Humanly-Cultivated talent.

David’s sling-shot shot was the result of practical practice,

Enhanced by God.

Once they wanted heaven,

Now they’re happy with earth.

Once liked holy laughter,

Now seek out cheap mirth.

Once saints were their company,

Now saints they seem to shun.

Once they were in the race,

Now have forgotten how to run.

Be watchful little pilgrim,

Be humble in your own sight,

Be loving to your neighbor,

One near, one out of sight.

Work, walk, be awake, watch.

Day soon turns to dark night.
