’twas satan’s plan to watch us rot and laughed as we decayed
It was not something I could foresee or even knew could be for me
I thought all Christians were somehow . . . a slice of nature’s freaks
All so very prim and proper ~ not what I was used to having seen
Their lives all squeaky clean
That is so, so not for me!
. . . Or so I thought ~
I wanted life to be full of love and fun!
To be just like the world who drank, and smoked and lived to party on
That’s what I longed to be
thinking that life of fun would somehow set me free
Oh, how wrong was I . . .
That I now so clearly see
It was a painful path for me to take
as I was led astray
believing lies the devil spake
who joyed to see me flee
a life of comfort, and protective covering
from this he wanted me
to be his little toy in paw
to smack, and shake and beat
Oh, and how he did!
he beat me down into a pulp
taking my mind and soul
off to hell, well on my way
~ until that very special day!
My brother, Gerardo,
who is known as my HERO!
came to rescue me
from the pit of hell
of which I went off to so willingly
it was satan’s darkest plans I followed ignorantly
Sadly, there are so many others just like me
as if their boat had sunk to leave them lost at sea
He stretched forth his hand in love for me
and I took it ~ but not so freely
I’d slam the phone down in his ear
For I thought I knew the light from dark
And as I slammed that phone down in his ear
It was pride ~ eating away, and guiding me
I am so glad that he never chose to give up on me
On with his calls he went
Always so lovingly inviting me
To come with him to his new church . . .
For him and for his gift
of showing me the way
I am so forever grateful!
For if he hadn’t left the path of destruction
and turned his life around
I would not find my feet to touch the solid ground
the ground is firm
here to support
all of our miseries
to lift us on up to higher planes
of joy, and life abundantly!
For now it is my joy to see
what it is the Lord has so willingly
Lovingly and freely offered me!
It is a life that sometimes hurts
but in the end is glee
It’s with much hope I long to see
those who hurt to join with me
to get to know this Lord of mine
that took my hand and heart for all time
His name is Jesus Christ, you see
from birth He came to love you
just as He does me
There is not one that He can’t save
out from the snare of the demon king
He was with you yesterday
here with you today,
and His promises are forevermore
to be with you always
Oh, lost one, what is it that
sets you back from holding fast
to that which is so very rich in Truth?
Do not be one to go the way on that dark path
to end up satan’s ruse
For once you leave this world behind
there is no more to do . . .
once you’re gone far from this place
who will it be you stare in the face?
will it be the one of fiery coals
or will you make Heaven your heart’s goal?
Oh, sweet one, with Love I seek
to see you long for Jesus~ to be His freak!
So, come with me and take my hand
join with me in this fine land
where neither moth nor rust corrupt
and spend eternity!
Let the leaves of your tree fall . . .
On to the land with ease
With the Love of our Lord and Saviour’s
Gentle Loving Breeze
