Not so long ago
Words seemed too many and so large
And towns seemed so small
That has all changed since my call.
It’s a different world once you have received a charge.
Today my books are full of words
That help me to understand
Things past and present once distraught
But at the cost of reading in microscopic font.
While striving to live the greatest command.
And the towns which once seemed empty
No places to go hang out
Now seem so full of hurting people and needs
Will I be able to plant enough seeds?
And finally let the good news out.
The world has really not changed much.
It lives for glory, fame, and even wealth.
But my eyes are set upon another place
Where stored up treasure is truly safe,
And my purpose is beyond myself.
I see the world through different eyes
Though physically they are the same
My vision responds to a new paradigm
One which embodies both rhythm and rhyme
And calls me to live fully for The Name.
