The Good Book,
Don't it say?
Fruit hanging low
Don't taste so good
As what you had to get a ladder fer.

Fruit too early picked from the vine,
I'm sure the Good Book says:
Disrespects the dresser,
Because all the work he put in
Cost him more than his helper,
It cost him his son.

Like the good fruit in our life
Only God's grace makes it grow.
As the Good Book says:
It can for sure be aplenty
But never on the cheap.*

*God's grace is free, but it is not
cheap. It comes to us at quite a price.
