Acappella - Dime Rhyme Song lyrics

Consider this guy I saw the other day
Downtown early morning he stopped me and said
Could you spare some change or maybe even a buck
He scribbled "Jesus Loves You!" on a cardboard box
I looked him over quickly just so see if he was worthy
But he was dirty, he was dingy and he'd had a few too many
So I turned away and I walked on by
I was headed to Mickey D's for coffee and an apple pie
But I couldn't get him out of my mind
"When you're doing it to the least of these
You're doing it to me," kept creepin' up in the back of my mind ya see
I forgot to be Jesus; I had missed an opportunity
I turned around to go back and be the man I know I should be
When I got back to the corner where I knew the guy was standin'
He was already gone, he disappeared without a warnin'
The only thing left was a "Jesus Loves You!" sign and
The dot on the exclamation point was covered with a dime

Scriptural Reference:

"But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, 'And who is my neighbor?' In reply Jesus said: 'A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side." Luke 10:29-32
