**10 Little
Christians**

**10 little Christians
standing in line.**

1 disliked the preacher, then there were
9.

9 little Christians stayed up very late.

1
overslept Sunday, then there were 8.

8 little
Christians on their way to Heaven.

1 took the low road and
then there were 7.

7 little Christians chirping like
chicks.

1 disliked music, then there were 6.

6
little Christians seemed very much alive,

but one lost his
interest then there was 5.

5 little Christians pulling
for Heaven's Shore,

but one stopped to rest, then there
were 4

4 little Christians each busy as a bee.

1 got
his feelings hurt, then there were 3

3 little
Christians knew not what to do.

1 joined the sporty crowd,
then there were 2

2 little Christians, our rhyme is
nearly done,

differed with each other, then there was
1

1 little Christian can't do much 'tis
true,

brought his friend to bible study, then there were
2

2 earnest Christians, each won one more.

That
doubled the number, then there were 4

4 sincere
Christians worked early and late.

Each won another then
there were 8

8 splendid Christians if they doubled as
before.

In just so many Sundays, we'd have 1,024

In
this little jingle, there is a lesson true,

you belong
either to the building or to the wrecking
crew!
