Mary's Lamb

Mary had a little Lamb

His fleece was white as snow.

And everywhere that Mary went

The Lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school each day

T'wasn't even in the rule.

It made the children laugh and play

To have a Lamb at school.

And then the rules all changed one day

Illegal it became.

To bring the Lamb of God to school

Or even speak His Name!

Every day got worse and worse

And days turned into years.

Instead of hearing children laugh

We heard gun shots and tears.

What must we do to stop the crime

That's in our schools today?

Let's let the Lamb come back to school

And teach our kids to pray!

This sweet little poem makes me think of how ugly this old world is when we try to silence the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world. Thank you for reminding us. Leanne
