Throw it in the River!

A preacher, completing a temperance sermon, spoke with great fervor! “If I had all the beer in the world, I’d throw it all into the river.”

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

And finally he said, “And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I’d throw it all into the river, too!”

As he took his chair, the song leader stood and announced with a smile, “For our closing hymn, let us sing number 365:”

“Shall We Gather at the River.”
