Sister Wynona Carr

(I use this first verse as a chorus:)

Life is a ballgame bein' played each day.
Life is a ballgame ev'rybody can play.
Jesus standing at home plate is a-waiting for you there.
Life is a ballgame, but you've got to play it fair.

The first base is temptation; the second base is sin.
The third base tribulation; if you pass you can make it in.
Ol' man Solomon is the umpire and Satan pitchin' the game.
He'll do his best to strike you out, but keep playin' just the same.

Daniel's up to bat first; you know he prayed three times a day.
Yes, Satan pitched him a fast ball, but he hit it anyway.
Job is up to bat next; Satan struck him in every way,
But Job hit a home run and he came on in that day.

Prayer is our strong bat to hit at Satan's ball,
And when you start to swing it, you got to give it your all in all.
Faith's gonna be your catcher, and on him you can depend,
For Jesus standing at home plate, and he's waiting for you to come in.

Moses is on the sidelines waiting to be called.
The day he parted the Red Sea, he gave Christ his all-in-all.
Then John came in the ninth inning and the game was almost done,
Then God gave John a vision and he knew he'd already won.
