Hallelujah

Hallelujah



In 1994, I found my way to the Lord

He was in a strip mall, behind a rental space door

He was relocating, a Pastor and His church

And I was looking for something; no clue of the search



The folks welcomed me in with a handshake and a pat on the back

God knew what He was doing; getting me on track

And I listened to the Pastorís message; tears filled my eyes

I was headed to Hell; that part was no surprise



But I heard how God loved me and sent His only Son

To pay the penalty for my sins; to reconcile, this one

He sent me His personal invitation, to come and dine

And at the ripe ole age of thirty six; I realized, it was time



The Pastor called us to come, but I simply could not move

Satan had his hold on me; like nails in my shoes

I opening up my tear filled eyes; and saw the Pastor there

Saying, if for some reason you canít come; pray with me this prayer



So I opened up my mouth; prayed those simple words

Now, I donít know what happened; but a loud hallelujah, was heard

And thatís the way it was for me; that Christmas Day in 94

Could I interest you, in that simple prayer and introduce you, to my Lord?

What a tribute Irv, to your day of liberation, from this old world into
a new life! It was a refreshing poem to read. Take Care (tc).
