I Chose To Look The Other Way

I could have spread the word that day,
But I chose to look the other way.
It wasn't that I didn't care,
I had the time, and I was there.

But I didn't want to seem a fool,
Or argue over God's holy rule.
I knew he'd heard the word before;
If I preached at him, he might get sore.

I know his stand didn't seem so bad -
I 'd done the same, and he knew I had!
I just shook my head , and walked on by,
He knew the wrong as well as I.

He chose his life; I closed my eyes,
And with that act, I let him die.
I could have spread the word that day,
But I chose to look the other way.

Now every time I see his wife,
I know I could have helped his life.
That guilt is something I must bear,
But it isn't something you need to share.

If you see a sin that others make,
That puts their eternal soul at stake,
The word you spread, the thing you say,
Could help them live God's holy way.

If you see a sin, and walk away,
Then hope you never have to say:
"I could have spread the Word that day,
But I chose to look the other way."
