    The policeman stood and faced God.

    The policeman stood and faced God, Which must always come to pass, He hoped his shoes were shining, Just as brightly as his brass.

    "Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To my church have you been true?" The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No Lord, I guess I ain't, Because those of us who carry a badge, can't always be a saint." I've had to work most Sundays, and at times my talk was rough, and sometimes I've been violent, Because the streets are awfully tough. But, I never took a penny, That wasn't mine to keep, Though I worked a lot of overtime, When the bills got just too steep. And I never passed a cry for help, Though at time I shook with fear, And sometimes, God frogive me, I've wept unmanly tears. I know I don't deserve a place, Among the people here, They never wanted me around, Except to calm their fear. If you've a place for me here, Lord, It needn't be so grand, I never expected or had too much, But, if you don't I'll understand. There was a silence all around the throne, Where the saints had often trod, As the policeman waited quietly, For the judgement of his god.

    "Step forward now, policeman, You've born you burdens well, Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets, You've done you time in hell."
