Some keep the Sabbath going to church;

I keep it staying at home,

With a bobolink for a chorister,

And an orchard for a dome.

Some keep the Sabbath in surplice;

I just wear my wings,

And instea

d of tolling the bell for church,

Our little sexton sings.

God preaches, - a noted clergyman, -

And the sermon is never long;

So instead of getting to heaven at last,

I'm going all along!
