It Just Really Ain't Worth It Mister
"It Just Really Ain't Worth It Mister "
"It just really ain't worth it ,mister,
What you will have to go through.
When Satan tempts me now I know
What people told me that it's true."
The young man spoke such sad words
As I walked past him in his jail cell,
"No one could make me believe before
But now I know the truth all too well.
When that old devil wants to tempt you ,
Do not stop , run, do not just walk away."
And I think so often of that young man
And of where he is living his life today.
Now that I am older ,I think in memory
I think of myself in my youthful days,
When the Lord intervened i n my life
And showed Himself in different ways
I did not really know Him back then
Oh, but He knew me much too well.
I was sick of what He saved me from
And the precious stories I could tell.
I passed through youth's troubled days
As through this world I would trod,
Some friends told me how it happened
They said conscience , I called Him God!
I carried those words with me always.
At times I would think of a wasted life,
Of the life in anger that he had taken,
And his own life of sorrow and strife.
A freedom gone forever tell his family,
A prison cell home until his dying breath.
His freedom he has given up forever.
Will he meet Jesus before he meets death?
If you know of some foolish young people
Who are always straddling Satan's gate.
Go to them now and tell them this story,
Tell them now before it is forever too late!
I guess there is not much to add to this .
God gave me this in the middle of the
night . I was not sure if I would get it on
here tonight , When I write it at night I
have trouble trying to decipher it. I am
sure there must be some young ones out
there to warn them of the dangers.!
