The Street Preachr

There upon the Street corner 

He stands

With Bible in hand

He preaches God's word

For all to hear

For anyone 

With a listening ear

 

His clothes are

Worn

Tatered

Dirty

He has been cut

By life's thorns

 

He looks

Weak

Hungry 

Worn out

Like a fighter

About to go down

 

Still he preaches

God's salvation

God's mighty plan

Trying to help

One and all understand 

 

Sure he looks like

Something someone

Has thrown out

His love for God is strong

 

He's been arrested 

He's been locked away

As soon as they let him out

He finds another

Street corner 

And preaches away

 

They've 

Beat him

Threatened him

Cops have tried

Sending him away

Nothing they have tried 

Had work

He just preaches away

 

The city has tried many times

With laws to cnfine him

None of them worked

For it's God's power

That defines him

 

He knows up in Heaven

He'll be homeless no more

His words will echo 

Out forevermore 

 

So next time you

See a street preacher 

Don't run away

For it may be worth

Hearing what they say
