Yes, I remember my conversion,
A tent meeting early in life,
I am standing outside, eyes on fire!
Horizon sliced like a knife!
A boy, same age, confronted me,
Said something about the flames,
Reminiscent of H e l l I assumed
I then preached without shame!
I led the lad to the tent then
The alter there was still full!
We knelt together, first convert,
Seemed with God I had p u l l(?)
Later, I believe, I l o s t it!
Wanted to do my own thing,
Back and forth it was up and down
Guess I needed a fling.
Guess that is what I wanted so I did it,
Saw the country my way!
Transgressor’s way is hard! I kept going!
Hitch-hiking m a n y a day!
From ocean to ocean, crossed many streams,
Mountains, yes, rivers, et al.
Ozarks, Badlands, The Black Hills, too.
Rockies, yes, mountains still call!
Then the big war, fought as First Scout,
Yes, God had His hand on me!
Powerful prayers of my mother back home,
Consummate blessings now free!
I obeyed God’s call to preach The Word!
Married a wife somewhere.
Evangelistly on request
Place to p r e a c h, sure, I am there!
Of course, God supplied all our needs,
We never once suffered want!
Desires of our hearts, yes that, t o o.
Need something? Come to the Fount!
We came, God blessed e x c e e d i n g l y!
From son, two daughters, a tribe!
Grand and great grandchildren galore!
Which I love best, cannot decide!
Do not you know that that’s God’s love for us?
Could I ever suffer loss?
Do not need to! Jesus died for us a l l!
Horrible death of the c r o s s!
