Now here is a tale of two cars
one souped up and shining bright
The other car was just plain and simple
both were waiting at the light

Then slowly, the light turned green
and each car shifted in gear
The souped up one took off in a flash
forgetting the wisdom, of God begin's
with fear

Far behind the plain car paced
knowing it had to run with love
and it mattered not how long it took
it relied on strenght from above

The souped up car came rushing again
not letting patience have the say
but the slow plain car kept it's speed
and allowed God's word to have it's way

The the souped up car began to roar
and start spinning wheels of hate
Not realizing it would damage the engine
by using it to argue and debate

The plain car just kept on moving
for it knew it would get there
if it stayed with road map that God gave
and keep in mind to be just and fair

For on this road of trials and tests
we will be put on the line
and if we fail to past the test
we have to take it over, time after time

I has nothing to do in how fast you go
but what we put in it
for it takes certain qualities to stay in the race
so for heaven, we will be, well fit
