"Shout"

Shout

Shouts of preach, yes sir-
And sho' you right

Passin' the basket and prayin'-
All through the night…

The good Reverend's voice-
Strains to be heard

As the church says amen-
To his every word

Quoting the Bible-
Both chapter and verse…

A sister with the spirit-
Is calmed by a nurse…

The choir sings and claps-
In rhythmic responses…

The congregation's alive-
Even the building bounces…

Finally, empty and quiet-
To the very last board…

Another Sunday is over-
In the house of the Lord…

Rick Holton
