NEVER LOST

I was never ever lost, could always find

My way.  Ocean to the sea!

Sure, Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific

Hitchhiking far more to see!

.

.

Back and forward:  Texas and, of course, Utah!

No Mormons ever bothered me.

“Great Salt Lake” even tried to swim there,

Just impossibility!

.

.

Nebraska, so flat, but a gradual climb,

Colorado then Arizona, palm trees.

Near forgot Minnesota, sure, Idaho.

Phoenix, no ocean breeze!

.

.

Washington, Oregon, California,

Of course, Mexico!

Orphanage there.  We ministered.

Arizona, Nevada, below.

.

.

Did I forget the New England States?

North Carolina, and South?

Missed Florida, born in Michigan.

Pennsylvania, States South.

.

.

Wooster, Ohio.  Chicago, Illinois.

A brother lived there a while.

Oh,  forgot islands and India,

Lepers, can’t forget.  Defile.

.

.

“Don’t touch them, we say, but JESUS did!

And healed them wherever.

No cure for that disease none at all.

But with GOD never a never!

.

.

I was never lost, went everywhere!

The Turkey to Timbuktu!

Hitchhiking, what else, riding freight trains!

Well, nothing else to do!

.

.

But lost I was in the depths of sin!

In Japan, I discovered, true!

A missionary and an Army Chaplin,

Found then, what I had to do!

.

.

Many others with circumstances

Conspired to bring this lost,

Who was never really lost until discovered

Why Jesus died, this cruel cross!

.

.

Hard to believe Army in combat

When it was Reverend, Preach, the

Out of the blue my decision made

To give Jesus my all!
