Mary had a little Lamb

Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school each day,
T'wasn't even in the rule.
It made the children laugh and play,
To have a Lamb at school.

And then the rules all changed one day,
Illegal it became;
To bring the Lamb of God to school,
Or even speak His Name!

Every day got worse and worse,
And days turned into years.
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gun shots and tears.

What must we do to stop the crime,
That's in our schools today?
Let's let the Lamb come back to school,
And teach our kids to pray!

The story behind it is this: Carol Josey teaches a children's class at church and she was using a lamb puppet in class when the words to Mary had a Little Lamb came to her head. The Lord told her to write it and she said, Lord everyone knows that poem. He said write it anyway. When she got home, she began to write and she realized the words were not the same as our familiar nursery rhyme. He began to reveal to her that Mary (Jesus' Mother) had a Little Lamb (Jesus).
