A young preacher was arrested
After a killing of a Christian took place
He was being driven to his place
Where the prisoners were black and blue
He said he was innocent but you know cops
The preacher tried to prove but no one listened
As they got about five miles away from his church
He asked,ā€ Officers, about where Iā€™m going,
Will I be allowed to kneel? Will there be a bible.ā€
The officers looked back at him with a sad look
But kept going forward.
They believed he was innocent
But knew the consequences of letting him go.
The preacher was about to get executed
But was interrupted by the cops that gave him the drive
They put a bible in his hand and buried him
In front of his church.
On his tomb was written, ā€œ
Will I be allowed to kneel. Will there be a bible?
Will I see Jesus? Will my family be there?
I will be with my Lord and family
Up in heaven.
