From heaven, the devil dropped out,
Ever since, his evil to spout.
He caused Adam and Eve to sin,
Become drop-outs from the garden.
When Cain killed his brother Abel,
He dropped out of God’s Grace as well.
Moses from Egypt did drop-out.
When God led him by a special route.
Naaman dropped out of Syria
To meet Elisha’s criteria.
Dropped into the muddy Jordan,
So his skin became spic and span.
Job had to drop out of his role.
He lost everything but his soul.
After testing, God did restore
All that he had and even more.
David dropped out of a shepherd’s role
To Jerusalem, in control.
Daniel did not drop out from prayer
Dropped in and out of a lion’s lair.
Early Christians were drop-outs too.
The rigid laws just would not do.
Paul made a dramatic drop-out.
Surely this is true without doubt.
Martin Luther dropped out as well,
Of reformation he did tell.
Puritans dropped out of Europe.
Religious freedom was their hope.
Many other drop outs there are.
They come from near, they come from far.
Their reasons may be good or not.
God knows about that, we cannot.
When Jesus out of heaven dropped,
Other drop-outs he certainly topped.
Because our Father loved us so,
He sent His Son this love to show.
By faith in Him we can drop-out
Of sin, into fellowship, devout.
What kind of drop-out will you be?
Will you be glad your Savior to see
