Christianity is a game of follow the leader,
All players are to follow in Jesus’ steps.
At times it is difficult as trailing a speeder,
So it is commonplace to look to our fellow reps.
If a player should wander off of the Leader’s path,
Do not follow them because their path looks easy.
For it only leads to trouble, ‘t is simple math.
Stay on Jesus’ path, though on it you may get queasy.
If you see others breaking the rules,
Don’t give up and quit the game.
Keep your eyes on Jesus, unlike those other fools,
For it is Him, not they that leads to the Spiritual Hall of Fame.
Yes, this path is full of hardship and sorrows,
Not just joyous bliss and quiet peace.
So blessed is he who looks to new tomorrows
And depends on the Lord their burdens to cease.
Lord, there is none beside, nor before You.
Domine Deus, tu solus sanctus. Amen.
