From Innocent Lips

    He was just a little lad,

    and on the week's last day.

    He was wandering home from Sabbath School,

    and dawdling on the way.

    He scuffed his shoes into the grass;

    he found a caterpillar;

    He found a fluffy milkweed pod,

    and blew out all the "filler."

    A bird's nest in a tree o'er head

    so wisely placed on high,

    Was just another wonder

    that caught his eager eye.

    A neighbor watched his zigzag course,

    and hailed him from the lawn;

    Asked him where he'd been that day,

    and what was going on.

    "I've been to Bible school," he said,

    and turned a piece of sod.

    He picked up a wiggly worm and said,

    "I've learned a lot of God."

    "M'm a very fine way," the neighbor said,

    "for a boy to spend his time."

    If you'll tell me where God is,

    I'll give you a brand new dime."

    Quick as a flash his answer came!

    Nor were his accents faint.

    "I'll give you a dollar, Mister,

    if you'll tell me where God ain't!"
