THE OLD ROCKING CHAIR

LET ME SHARE WITH YOU FOR A MOMENT
SOMETHING I SHARED WITH MY OLD FRIEND
YOU SEE BOBBY HAD BECOME VERY SICK
AND WAS COMING TO HIS LIFEíS END
HE ASKED ME TO STOP BY HIS HOUSE
TO SEE HIM WHILE HE WAS STILL HERE
HE SAID HE DIDNíT HAVE LONG TO LIVE
AND HAD SOMETHING I NEEDED TO HEAR
WHEN I WALKED INTO HIS ROOM
AN OLD ROCKING CHAIR SAT BY HIS BED
I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS MEANT FOR ME
BUT BODDY TOLD ME THIS STORY INSTEAD
HE TOLD ME HE HAD TAKEN MY ADVICE
FROM A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO
WHEN HE TOLD ME HE HAD TROUBLE PRAYING
SO I TOLD HIM WHAT IíD COME TO KNOW
I SAID WHEN YOU ARE PRAYING
ITíS AS EASY AS TALKING TO ME
GOD WANTS US TO BE HIS FRIEND
AND THATíS HOW PRAYER SHOULD BE
JUST IMAGINE YOUíRE TALKING TO A FRIEND
FACING YOU IN THAT EMPTY CHAIR
AND SOON YOU WILL DISCOVER HOW EASY
IT IS TO GO TO THE LORD IN PRAYER
BOBBY TOLD ME WITH THAT ADVICE
AND THE HELP OF THAT OLD ROCKING CHAIR
OF THE MANY HAPPY HOURS HEíD SPENT
TALKING TO HIS FRIEND JESUS SITTING THERE
HEíD OPENED HIS HEART AND SOUL TO HIM
AND HE THOUGHT THAT IíD WANT TO KNOW
HOW THIS PRAYER TIME HAD CHANGED HIS LIFE
AND NOW HE WAS PREPARED TO GO
BOBBY PASSED AWAY THIS WEEK
THEY BURIED HIM TODAY
I SAW HIS WIFE AT THE FUNERAL
AND SHE HAD THIS TO SAY
BOB PASSED SO PEACEFULLY
HE WAS SO HAPPY AFTER YOU WERE THERE
WE FOUND HIM SMILING IN HIS BED
WITH HIS HAND IN THAT OLD ROCKING CHAIR
