I can still see her in my mind

Being held by my pastor’s wife

It was Sunday night at church

At a very young time in her life

A blonde-headed three-year-old

Her head was covered with curls

What she did next was amazing

For a very bashful little girl

Pastor’s wife held a microphone

As that little girl shyly began

Starting with Genesis she recited

The Bible books, fast as you can

The Old Testament was hard

And she stumbled over a few

She started the New Testament

And in a sing-song style, she flew

The congregation was astounded

Giggling, her face she did hide

Me, I was happy beyond words

And in my daughter I took pride
