(Biblical Poem) There Hath No Temptation Taken Me

THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN ME

 

There has no temptation ever tempted me

O’ what a huge lie that would most surely be

Has there ever been a sin that didn’t stain me

In my youth there many ladies delighted me

Though nothing about a man ever did excite

 

There are some sins that I have not yet done

I pray that with my gray balding hair they stay

Age is a present to some, yet a curse to the many

Those with a greedy heart curse their inabilities

With age, hopefully wisdom given heart and Soul

 

If man knew all our sins, would from a tree we swing

Temptation, what was its worth, when in a box we be

How will we be remembered, as a fool, or wise were we

The Pied Piper from Hell, certainly knows all our tunes

Did we choose to let temptation send us down to He
