ON A COLD AND WINTRY NIGHT
A sinner, lost , undone,
I came to hear the Gospel preached,
To hear about God's son.
The one who can deliver
A sinful soul like me,
I wanted to know how to be saved,
How the lord could set me free.
I came to church on Sunday night,
But i found the door was closed!
They had cancelled the gospel meeting,
It was holiday time i suppose.
Others came and then turn away,
Disapointed at the sight,
The bars were open, the church was closed
On that cold and wintry night.
The Devil welcomed his patrons,
And i could imagine his glee
That the church was closed, the lights were out,
There was no welcome there for me!
I thought that this was the lord's day,
And not ours to do as we will,
Then why do men close up God's house,
While sinners are perishing still?
By- Joy Patterson
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together as the manner of some is,
but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day."
" Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine."
11 Timothy 4:2
