By Ronnie Daly
Money they have offered me;
It I didn’t receive.
Big churches they have promised me,
The truth I will never leave.
I have received threats from brethren;
They have denied me a place to preach.
But I shall still cling to the gospel
And seek those whom I can teach.
A big name they have promised me;
If I preach what they want to hear.
Start preaching on love and mercy,
Stop preaching on fornication
And the drinking of beer!
I will never have a big name
Nor have many places to preach,
But with God’s help I will be faithful
While heaven I hope to reach!
