MORE POEMS OF THE SPACE AGE

 

 Far-fetched? Perhaps….

Martian 

The Missionary

A man climbed into a rocket ship

And left the earth on an eight-month trip.

On the planet Mars he then did land

With a Holy Bible in his hand.

He said to the Martians in their holes,

“I’m called by God to save your souls.

Jesus died for you and me,

So we can live eternally.

“The Lord who made your world will come.

And take you to your heavenly home.

The Devil He will lock in Hell,

Where unbelievers all will dwell.

“Come, kneel down and confess your sin!

God’s Word will show you what you’ve been.

His love will fill your souls with peace,

His blessings on you will not cease!”

A Martian came and touched his sleeve.

He said, “Messiah, we believe!

Our Holy Scriptures told of Thee.

O, blest to see Thy face are we!”

The missionary sent a prayer on high,

He rent the thin air with his cry,

“Halleluja! Praise God, they hear!”

Then the Martians all did disappear.

But soon a multitude returned,

And a frightful truth the preacher learned:

“We’re all who survive in the caverns deep,

Your one hundred forty-four thousand sheep.

“Take us, Lord, to Paradise,

Where we may live beneath blue skies

In the Land where milk and honey run:

The third planet from the sun!”
