The Ball Game
Life is a ball game Bein' played each day Life is a ball game Everybody can play Yes you know, Jesus standing at the home plate He is waiting for you there You know, the life is a ball game But you've got to play it fast The first phase is temptation You know the second phase is sin The third phase tribulation If you pass, you can make it in Old man Solomon is the umpire And Satan pitchin' a game He'll do his best, strike you out He playin' just the same You know, Daniel's up to bat first You know, he pray three times a day Yes Satan pitched him a fast ball But he hit it anyway Yes you know, Job is up to bat next Satan's struck him in every way But Job hit a home run And he came on in that day Yes you know, prayer is a strong bat To hit at Satan's ball And when you start to swing it You got to give it your all and all Yes you know, the priest gonna be your catcher And on him you can depend Oh Jesus standing at the home plate And He is waiting for you to come in Yes you know, Moses is on the sidelines Waiting to be called You know, the day he parted the Red Sea Little price all and all Then John came in the ninth inning And the game was almost done Then God gave John a vision And he knew we'd already won Yes you know life is a ball game Being played each day You know life is a ball game Each and everybody can play Yes you know, Jesus is standing at the home plate He is waiting for you there Well you know, life is a ball game But you've got to play it fast
