Stacey Hall…

Every day at sunset,
Stacey got behind the wheel

drove down a country road,
to a small church on a hill

she sat on them concrete steps,
winter summer spring and fall

people drove by all the time,
just to stare a Stacey Hall

it’s better than a play ground,
she told her friends and family.

it’s a play ground for my kids
but it’s a house of God to me.

One day Sister Susan,
called up Brother Paul

said I’m getting tired,
getting tired of seeing Stacey Hall

she don’t belong to our church
and I don’t like her at all

I think the elders of our church
should talk to Stacey Hall…

 
Well the congregation gathered,
as the sun began to fall

and faithfully they all agreed,
they’d soon see Stacey Hall.

Suddenly the sky turned black
and a bolt of lightning hit

a tree beyond the little church
where the congregation sit.

brothers don’t judge brothers,
sisters do the same

love your neighbor faithfully
and praise praise praise His name.

Stacey saw the hurricane,
just as she pulled in

and she was glad to see some cars
and rushed inside to warn them

once inside the basement,
where they was safe and warm

the Elders watched as Stacey clutched
Her Bible through that storm.

I say, brothers don’t judge brothers,
sisters do the same

love your neighbor faithfully
and praise praise praise His name.

Now every day at sunrise,
Stacey meets with everyone

to rebuild the little church
they’re working till the settin’ sun

the children love playing hide and seek
and the Elders one and all
Love to drive by that little church
Just to wave at Stacy Hall..
once inside the new church
a book fell from a pew

and there in bold black letters said
“I will judge not you”
