Hymn #365

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he
said, “If I had all the beer in the world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.”

With even greater emphasis he said, “And if I had all the wine in the world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.”

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, “And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.”

Sermon complete, he sat down.

The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, nearly laughing, “For our closing song, Let us sing Hymn #365, ‘Shall We Gather at the River.'”
