Default A Dollar I Gave to God

I had inherited my great-grandfather's copy of Devotions & Prayers of John Calvin and I was flipping through it today. If found this poem in between a couple of the pages:

Three thousand for my brand new car,
Five thousand for a piece of sod.
Ten thousand paid to being a house.
A dollar I gave to God.
A tidy sum to entertain
My friends in pointless chatter,
And when the world goes crazy mad,
Iask: "Lord, what's the matter?"
Yet there is one big question,
For the answer I will search;
With things so bad in this old world,
"What's holding back my church?"
- Wellington Place Baptist
