Mover or Shaker ?

Ten Little Christians
- author unknown

10 little Christians standing in line,
1 disliked the preacher, then there were 9

9 little Christians stayed up very late,
1 overslept on Sunday, then there were 8


8 little Christians on their way to heaven,
1 took the low road and then there were 7

7 little Christians chirping like chicks,
1 disliked the liturgy, and then there were 6

6 little Christians seemed very much alive,
but one became disinterested and then there were 5

5 little Christians swimming for heaven’s shore,
but one stopped for a breather , and then there were 4

4 little Christians each busy as a bee,
1 got his feelings hurt, then there were 3

3 little Christians knew not what to do,
1 joined the wild crowd, then there were 2

little Christians, our rhyme is nearly done,
argued over good works, and then there was 1

1 little Christian can’t do much, ’tis true,
brought his friend to Bible study - then there were 2


2 earnest Christians, each one reached one more,
That doubled the number, then there were 4

4 sincere Christians worked early and late,
Each won another, then there were 8

8 splendid Christians if they doubled as before,
In just so many Sundays, there’d be 1,024





In this little jingle, there is a lesson true,
you belong to either the building or the wrecking crew!
