And before she went to bed each night His praises she did laud.
It was the way that she’d been taught from the earliest of years.
So now this moment in her life brought her nothing but more tears.
It started as a little girl when parents taught her how to live.
They modeled pomp and circumstance and taught her how to give.
They said what’s right and then what’s wrong and she were too obey.
And if she followed their instructions she would see heaven some day.
So she went to church and said the prayers reading Bible every week.
She knew most every story about the mighty and the weak.
When young adulthood came her way she taught others of them too.
She knew this was her role in life; it’s what she was supposed to do.
The man she married was so strong as she stood there by his side.
They had two kids who watched them close as together they abide.
They took their kids to Sunday school and the verses they did teach.
They were confident of the role they played; this family was a peach.
She now looks up at this man who with her life she must explain.
She had heard of Him from Sunday school but barely knew His name.
He asked her of her time before this day when all was real.
Did you ever think there could be more and did you really feel?
She thought again to early years and more tears filled her eyes.
She now could see that what was taught was filled with some half lies.
It was so great to go to church and to read the Bible too.
But it’s not enough to get to Heaven; to that land beyond the blue.
She looked again up at this man and now would recognize His name.
She had sung of Him in Sunday school and knew of His great claim.
It seemed just like a fairy tail and was so hard to believe.
So all the years she talked of God; His Son she didn’t receive.
The time had come to give account for the life that she did live.
And with her mouth did she confess and forgiveness He would give?
But the time had passed for this to happen and she didn’t know what to do.
As Jesus turned to her and said, I’m sorry, “Who Are You”?
