Prince of Preachers

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Prince of Preachers
Ebullient and excellent
Orator and pastor
Mentor and commentator
Reader and leader
Teacher, innovator, author
Business man, man of books
Sound, Stood by the word
Stayed true to his God
No matter whose ox is gored
Held many spell-bound
As he ministered the message
Of the Word of Life
From the Word of Life.

Had a tongue of purifying fire
That lifted many from the mire;
Gave you holy, godly desire
That charged you, lit your fire,
Ignited purposeful pursuit.

Stood against the hordes of hell,
Regardless of their disdain,
Vilification and persecution.
It all led to his promotion.
With a pen of a ready-writer
He was prolific like no other.
Impacted nations in a short span
Believed in a God who can
Do Exceedingly abundantly
the miraculous even from the ridiculous.
Wiped the tears off many faces
Propelled from the Throne of Grace.
Bold to take on lions
As a son of Zion.

Had a sickly smoking gun
That almost set the sun;
Shows how we must stand
Give no room to wicked bands.

Suffered a lot, yet blessed a lot
Dead long ago, yet speaks daily
Was bruised a lot and so used a lot.
Had a bold bout with gout
But held on without a doubt.

You too can be used today
Like he was in his day
But you will be bruised too
You will be opposed too.
But you can set your face
Like a flint by God’s grace
But allow no smoking gun
As the race of grace you run.
Allow no little foxes bent on ruin
Lay them bare for Him to prune
Put no strange fire in your bosom
Make no compromise in your storm
And you can go from glory to glory
And from strength to strength.
