Saul was ever so passionate
About pleasing the Lord his way
Apparently what he thought was right
Seemed to be from the Lord so astray.
Christ wasn’t the Truth he believed in
‘Down with the Church’ was his goal
No Jew was to change to Christian
The price was his life by the stone.
While to Damascus, as Saul went
The Spirit of Jesus followed
Blinding his eyes and intellect
To change his life inside out.
This small man who so great in power
Among the Jews was now clothed
In robes of grace by the Spirit
And lived for Jesus alone
That day while on to Damascus
The man that was once known as Saul
Renewed his life in God’s presence
Became the ‘live-for-Christ’ Paul.
Change me O Lord with your presence
Shelter me within your grace
Transform my life with your Spirit
As with Paul, my blindness You change.
