I wrote this poem after a visit with my son and his wife …


A heart filled with God’s Spirit yearns,

As never did before,

For saving grace to touch lost souls,

And see them lost no more.


Longing for sinners to be saved,

Filled with the Holy Ghost,

Know Jesus as their Savior, Lord,

That’s what we want the most.


Just think of what it would be like,

To hear of some new birth,

A thought that’s just too wonderful,

The greatest news on earth.


Oh glorious redemption song,

It’s our desire to sing,

Rejoicing that another soul,

Has come to Christ our King.


Salvation’s song, expressed with joy,

Heard in this weary land,

Bathing a soul with peaceful bliss,

A mercy from God’s hand.


Sharing God’s word, praying we wait,

How long, we cannot say,

Hearts always filled, with this one hope,

God knows, maybe someday.

2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
