Mary's little lamb

Mary’s Little 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,

When it wasn’t against the rules.

He made the the children laugh and play

To have the Lamb at school

Then the rules changed one day,

Against the law 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 and play,

You heard them crying tears.

What must we do to stop the crime,

That’s in our schools today?

Let the Lamb come back to school

And teach our kids to pray.
