THEM CHURCH FOLKS


THEM CHURCH FOLKS

 

Them church folks are surprising

To them that join ‘em there

In Church each Sunday morning…

They really seem to care.

-

They care for each other

In what they say and do,

But if you don’t stick out your hand…

They may not notice you.

-

A woman I sat next to in church

One fine and sunny morn,

Was praying someone would notice her…

So spiritually she was torn.

-

I prayed with her and a neighbor spoke

Saying it had been nearly a year,

Before SHE found attention paid

To her to bring her cheer.

-

Them church folks are, for people, good…

But none mind readers may

Be able to tell when something’s amiss,

If you are reluctant to say.
