LOST SOUL

From the very first days of my own salvation I have had a God given burden for the lost …

LOST SOUL

I wanted only good for you,

Of this you can be sure.

I shared God’s word, so you’d be saved,

My motive, it was pure.

*

Upset with me, because I told,

Of heaven, and a hell.

These are the words that Jesus said,

So this is what I tell.

*

There is a pain, deep in my heart,

It’s there most every day.

I’ve pled for years, I’m speechless now,

There’s nothing left to say.

*

An enemy, I have become,

Because of truth proclaimed.

Good news for all, the Gospel call,

I will not be ashamed.

*

Comfort, and peace, salvation’s joy,

Could all be yours to keep.

But still you choose, to have blind eyes,

The Lord you will not seek.

*

Eternity, without the Lord,

Why is it you don’t fear?

Years, precious few, do swiftly pass,

As day of death draws near.

*

The Gospel call, it separates,

Both here, and when we die.

We leave behind, those dearly loved,

And to the Lord draw nigh.

*

I wanted only good for you,

There’s still no other goal.

Because the Lord has filled my heart,

With love for your lost soul.

Mark 8:36-38 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
