A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said, "
If I had all the beer in the world,
I'd take it and pour it into the river."
With even greater emphasis he said, "And if I had
All the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."
And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he Said,
"And if I had all the whiskey in the world,
I'd take it and pour it into the river ."
Sermon complete, he sat down.
The song leader stood very cautiously and announced
With a smile, nearly laughing, "For our closing song,
Let us sing
Hymn #365, Shall We Gather at the River. '"
Smile, life is too short not to!
If this brightened your day
Don't let it stop here
Pass it on with a smile
Keep spreading the Cheer.
See you at the river
