A Dollar I Gave

Three thousand for my brand new car,
Five thousand for a piece of sod,
Ten thousand I paid to begin a house —
A dollar I gave to God.

A tidy sum to entertain
My friends in pointless chatter,
And when the world goes crazy mad
I ask, " Lord, what's the matter? "

Yet, there is one big question,
For the answer I still search
" With things so bad in this old world,
What's holding back my church? "
