The Non-Giver

THE NON-GIVER
BY RON KNOTT

I DREAMED I WENT TO HEAVEN,
AND YOU WERE NOT WITH ME
I WALKED UPON THE STREETS OF GOLD,
YOU WERE NOT THERE TO SEE.
I HEARD THE ANGELS CRYING
THEN SOMEONE CALLED YOUR NAME
HE IS NOT HERE, WAS THE REPLY THAT CAME.

THEN I HEARD MANY VOICES SAYING:

“SHAME YOU, FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD,
FOR WE ARE THE SOULS THAT WAS LOST.
SHAME YOU, FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD,
HOW WE WISH YOU HAD PAID THE COST!”

OTHER VOICES SAID:

I WENT TO YOUR SUNDAY SCHOOL
WHEN I WAS ONLY EIGHT.
BUT YOU SAID, “I’LL NOT TEACH THAT
LITTLE REPROBATE.”
I WANTED TO ASK JESUS INTO MY HEART,
YOU SAID, “KID I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR YOU,
YOU MUST DEPART.”

SHAME YOU FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD!

I WAS THE DRUNKARD OF YOUR TOWN,
AND BY THIS TERRIBLE DISEASE, I WAS BOUND.
YOU WOULD LAUGH AT ME LIKE I WAS A CLOWN,
AND THAT IS WHY YOUR JESUS, I NEVER FOUND.

SHAME YOU FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD!

I WANTED TO GO TO YOUR CHURCH,
BUT MY SKIN WAS BLACK.
I DID COME ONCE, BUT YOU DIDN’T WANT ME BACK.
THIS IS A VERY SAD, BUT A VERY TRUE FACT.
IN CONFUSION, I DIED ON AN OVER DOSE OF CRACK.

SHAME YOU FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD!

YOU PASSED ME EVERY SUNDAY,
I WANTED AND NEEDED TO HEAR WHAT THE
LORD HAD TO SAY.
IF YOU WOULD HAVE ONLY BEEN A GOOD
SAMARITAN ON THE WAY,
THEN I WOULDN’T BE HEADED FOR
DAMNATION TODAY.

SHAME YOU FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD!

REMEMBER THE TIME,
A MISSIONARY CAME TO YOUR CHURCH
AND YOU WOULDN’T GIVE A DIME.
YOU HAD A LOT OF MONEY
BUT WOULDN’T SEND ANY MY WAY,
AND THAT’S WHY I AM LOST TODAY!

SHAME YOU FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD!

I WAS INFECTED AND DYING WITH HIV,
YOU DID NOT WANT ANY DEALINGS WITH
THE LIKES OF ME.
IF YOU WERE THE CHRISTIAN YOU CLAIMED TO BE,
I WOULD NOT BE LOST FOR ALL ETERNITY!

SHAME YOU FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD!

AND I KNOW UP IN HEAVEN,
YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO CRY,
BUT I AM ALMOST SURE,
THERE WERE TEARS IN YOUR EYE,
JESUS CAME BEFORE YOU AND LOOKED YOU
IN THE FACE,
HE SAID, “DEPART FROM ME YOU SELFISH
ONE, YOU CANNOT ENTER INTO THIS PLACE.”

SHAME YOU FOR NOT GIVING TO THE LORD!
