Witnessing

They stood to witness in the street
Their lives in Christ anew
Calling in love at Jesus’ feet
Yet heard by just a few


It’s good to hear when others share
“God touched my heart today”
I loved their songs, their childlike prayers
Whilst I was on my way


It’s such a thrill God’s Truth to hear
His praises flood the land
See Christians dance, raise joyous cheer
That others understand


I saw the joy upon each face
Within their legs a spring
They spoke of Christ, of Heaven’s grace
I felt my heart take wing


Till then, of God I gave no thought
No need of Christ and yet
Twas through their fruit, this fish was caught
So firm in Jesus’ net


How strange to think I gave no fight
No struggle to be free
Instead, I felt a great delight
As Christ came into me


Now Truth is mine, these eyes can see
My former path was wrong
Yet Heaven's Lamb has set me free
To sing the world my song


For by God’s grace I’m born anew
In Jesus safe and sound
Now on the street I’ve joined the few
So others may be found…
