The new convert
I went to church the other day, just to see who was there.
I heard the singing and bowed for the prayer.
When the preacher preached, I listened,
And when he finished, my eyes glistened.
The words he spoke touched my heart,
In the sins he mentioned, I had a part.
I thought about the words he preached,
As for understanding my heart reached.
He spoke of faith right from the book,
I turned the page and had a look.
He also said we must repent,
as I pondered the wasted days I’d spent.
He said confess that glorious name,
And show the world I had no shame.
His final plea was that I must,
Be baptized in water, and in God trust.
Did I respond to his earnest plea?
Come next Sunday and you will see.
