Taking Lives And Burning Churches - Poem by Henry Lawrence Nix.

It's really bad to take a life, and especially burn down a church
Don't they realize the value of a life,
and how much a church is worth.

People are taking lives like they drink a glass of water,
Or something you can buy at a store, for only one thin quarter

For those of you who burn our churches, theres only one thing I can say
you will be very sorry on your judgment day.

To take a life or burn a church, its a dog gone shame
But I want you to remember that Jesus has a book of life,
Will Jesus find your name?
