Silver And Gold
This badge takes me to a time long ago, when our children went to Sunday School. Sam didn't pay much attention in class. Sarah did, and she got all the questions right. Sam, on the other hand, winged his way through it. When singing "Silver and Gold", for the third line, he would always sing:
"....He was asked for his arms, but through in his palms..."
The girls called him T Rex.
These are the correct lyrics. YOU probably know them....
Peter and John went to pray.
they met a lame man on the way
He asked for alms and held out his palms,
and this is what Peter did say"
Silver and gold have I none,
but such as I have give I you.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, in Jesus' name rise up and walk.
The man went walking and leaping and praising God,
Walking and leaping and praising God,
"In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, In Jesus' name rise up and walk".
