By Mablene Jenkins
As I walked contained in the little church condominium
my brain drifted again to a day
while i used to be a misplaced sinner
and did not understand how to pray.
The church then start singing
of the way Jesus desired to save
and at the previous pass of Calvery
to us his existence he gave.
Then within the again I heard shouting
prasies to Jesus on high
i do know in my middle that moment
Hell was once my domestic if I died.
Then anything inside me happened
the spirit of Jesus took hold
I knew the Altar used to be waiting
and to it i have to go.
on the Altar I knelt on my knees
and to the Lord I did pray
then a small voice from Heaven
acknowledged, wake up my baby you are saved.
this day i am so thankful
that the Lord cared sufficient for me
he gave me a house in Heaven
he stored me and set me free..
