Conversion of Saul


There was a man from Tarsus named Saul
Who persecuted Christians day after day
Then a blinding light caused him to fall
It came from heaven on the Damascus way

Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?
Who are you, Lord? Saul cried out, too
He said, I am Jesus, now go to the city
There it will be told what you must do

The men with Saul looked all around
Hearing a sound, but no one anywhere
Then when Saul got up from the ground
He was blind, darkness was everywhere

For three days, Saul was unable to see
So the other men led him by the hand
Going as told, until reaching the city
He was guided to the house of a man

There entered Ananias, sent by the Lord
God appeared to him in a special vision
First he questioned, then obeyed His word
Sent to restore Saul's sight as his mission

Ananias laid his hands on the eyes of Saul
He could see and was filled with the Spirit
God performed the miraculous work after all
Immediately preaching Jesus, others heard it

People could not believe the transformation
Was this not Saul that disgraced His name?
Jews conspired to kill, in hearing this information
Saul moved on, speaking boldly, without shame

Saul, see Acts 13:9, was also known as Paul
He was God's chosen man and instrument
Even through suffering, faithful to the call
Read his life example in the New Testament

(Based on parts of Acts 9:1-30)
