A young Preacher came into our town...

A young Preacher came into our town,
With Sparkling Eyes and no hint of a frown!
He had no bag, or mule, that day...
He simply Wandered in to stay!

The children came running to His Knee...
They sensed with Him they'd Welcome be...
He Told them stories... Held them Close...
And Said... "God Loves YOU the most!"

The adults wandered near to hear...
His Gentle Smile allayed any fear!
They listened intently to every Word...
And... hearts were warmed as His Passion Burned!

He Touched each life with His Presence,
Drew them out of obsolescence!
Not one would ever be the same...
Even if they never called on His Name!

Some were heartened... others were sad...
Some - as it turned out - were thoroughly bad!
Yet... each was Offered exactly the same chance...
Of a New Tune to which their spirit could Dance!

It took courage to believe and accept,
But at Encouragement He was Adept!
He Knew The Place... The Time and The Way...
To Draw hearts into His Father's Kingdom every day!

The Dance would go on down through the years,
To set people Free from their fears!
The Tune... unchanged.. would always ring True...
In the hearts and souls and spirits of a few!

The Composer of This Symphony...
Was Jesus...
And... 
He Set me Free!
