To Testify

Why spill my heart to you who sits
Before this man who thinks to quit
When times get rough, breathing becomes
A task harder with heart undone

My story told won't blow away
You who came to know this day
A day GOD blessed to count the ways
With faith, our shield to wear always

Yet with His gift I did not earn
He spoke to me, a son He yearns
To serve purpose, no not of mine
Those days of old, wasted of time

I who knows not verse as you
One He loves He called out to
Leave the old as it got old
 Tell them of me as you I told

From cocaine nights and drunkenness
Of sin you bore, your past confess
 Once captured, I would set free
Of heart broken, JESUS decrees

Through love but His, son I adore
Tell them of this, no less, but more
Of point blank range you would stare down
To save once more from Hells wake bound

Tell them of blade one pressed on chest
Where life time yours came near to less
There I too became apparent
Saving once more your loving parent

Tell them of the child I gave
A second chance this day that plays
A different beat no not disco
But how to come where you now go

Come as they are as I take you
Through days of wars and great breakthroughs
For in your walk though fall you may
I shall be there now and always

Wear my smile upon your heart
It's there right there where I impart
The best of CHRIST you came to know
The son I love who whispers so

And in closing tell them to see
It was about you, now more about me
