Daddy had a little boy,
His soul was white as snow.
He never went to Sunday School
Cause Daddy wouldn't go.
He never heard the Word of God.
That thrills the childish mind,
While other children went to class,
This child was left behind.
As he grew from babe to youth,
Dad saw to his dismay,
A soul that once was snowy white,
Became a dingy grey.
Realizing that his son was lost,
Dad tried to win him back.
But now the soul that once was white,
Had turned an ugly black.
Dad even started back to church,
and Bible study too;
He begged the preacher,
"Isn't there a thing you can do?"
The preacher tried, failed, and said
"We're just too far behind;
I tried to tell you years ago,
But you would pay me no mind."
And so another soul was lost,
That once was white as snow;
Sunday School would have helped,
But Daddy wouldn't go.
