Some say that they love baseball
And the evidence is plain;
Because when it comes to baseball
They never miss a game!
No matter what the weather
Heat, cold, rain or shine;
You can bet they’re going to be there
And you can bet they’ll be on time!
In fact…they’ll be there early,
They wouldn’t miss a single play,
And they’ll stay till the game is over,
If it takes all night and day.
Yes, some say that they love baseball
And you can see without a doubt;
That this game of baseball
Is what their life is all about.
Some say that they love Jesus,
But the evidence is not so clear;
Because when His saints assemble
You never know if they’ll be there.
They’ll be there when it’s convenient,
When they have no where else to be;
When the weather’s fine and the fish aren’t biting
And there’s nothing on TV.
Rarely do they get there
Before the assembly has begun;
If there’s somewhere else they want to be,
They’ll leave before it’s done.
Yes, some say that they love Jesus
But the evidence is plain
Their love for Jesus can’t compare
To the love some have for a game.
