My life was going up and down,
A wondering wilderness, 'round
and 'round,
Trying to make it on my own,
I ended up in jail, alone.

And so, my heart, I opened wide,
And asked the Lord to come inside,
"O' save me from this world of pain,
"And Bless me, Jesus,in your name,
"Lord give me purpose, and a reason,
"To serve you Lord, through every season".
"Please rid me of this painful sorrow,
"And guide my feet, "My King", tomorrow".

God heard my prayer that tearful night,
He changed my world from dark to light.
Today, I'm at Gods beck and call,
I help the "stumbling" ones that fall,
I visit the sick, and feed the poor,
And pray that I'll someday do more.

There is one thing I'll never know,
It's why Christ come to love so.
My bloodstained past is finally gone,
I now have access to Gods throne.
I thank the Lord for taking my place,
I'll thank Him someday, face to face.
Until that time, I will remain,
A Missionary sent ,in Jesus name.

And Jesus came spake onto them, saying,
All power is given unto me in heaven
and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you:
and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto
the end of the world. Amen.

MATTHEW 28:18-20
KJV

Very nice! How eloquently this speaks of God's mercy and grace. Keep writing!

Your title drew me in and I enjoyed your easy flow.

One thing I might change is your punctuation ie: quotes at begining and ending but I don't think they're needed on every line, periods and commas should be placed inside the quote also if you want to emphasize a word try put it in italics. (if you don't know the code to do this e-mail me and I'll send it to you)

Keep up the great work and may the Lord quide your quill as you write for the glory of HIM!
