This one is about what you'd do if Jesus was talking to you and if you only had a few hours left to live. What would you do?

I was sitting in a bar one night

When Jesus walked through the door

He bought me a double scotch

And talked about football scores

It was the Saints and Red Devils

How apt I began to think

I didn't know what to say

So I watched the game with Him

When Rooney scored a hat-trick

Jesus said, " He's one of mine"

And when the referee booked him,

"He works for the OTHER side!"

I asked Him why he was there

In the home of Sin and beer

He smiled at me, with a twinkle in his eye

Said, " When you wake, it will all be clear "

I finished my drink and left Him

Sitting by the bar

I fumbled in my pocket for the key to my car

Crashing through my door, I staggered to bed

With the words of Jesus ringing in my head

Sleep came racing quickly, stealing me away

I wouldn't have gone to sleep that night

Knowing I'd never see another day
