My Pastor

My Pastor
Let me tell you the story of my pastor and friend,
How God saved his soul and washed away his sins.

For twenty seven years his life was in a whirl,
Indulging sinful pleasures and the things of this world.

Then one night after work as he was driving home,
God let him see the frailty of life and how quickly it is gone.

Where the Johnson City Highway meets I eighty one,
There was an accident with casualties, Gods work had begun.

His attention was caught, and the things that he saw,
Made this intersection the cross roads of life for Andy Sensabaugh.

He began to ponder on life and death that night,
Concern swelled up as he began to see the light.

He saw this same scene for three nights in a row,
His heart was heavy and his spirits were low.

In a state of despair he called up a friend,
Got invited to a prayer meeting and decided to attend.

Then on the third day of May in the year of our Lord,
Nineteen hundred and seventy four,

At an old fashion cottage prayer meeting on the outskirts of town,
The portals of Heaven were opened and conviction came down.

Now hes a big ole man, an awesome sight to see,
But that night my Lord brought him down to his knees.

He cried out for mercy and asked God to save his soul,
Then Jesus moved in and took up abode.

Those tears of sorrow became tears of joy,
A child of Hell became Gods little boy.

Then his wife knelt down and was born again too,
Their strife was gone, behold all things are become new.

Then it wasn't very long till God called him to preach His word,
Just a few months ago it would have seemed so absurd.

In the beginning, the congregation was but two or three,
But he trusted in God to give the increase.

Just as faith had moved God to place him on that solid rock,
Faith moved God to increase the flock.

When he was saved, some people said it wont last long,
Well, that was thirty two years ago and hes still going strong.

If youd like to meet him, you won't have to search,
youll find him every Sunday and Wednesday - Front n' center - down at Freedom Baptist Church.

Hes the pastor there, hes loved by all,
Hes my pastor, hes my friend, hes my brother-in-law.

But more than this, because Jesus paid the price,
I can tell you that hes also my brother in Christ.

Carl
