Breathing out threats against disciples of the Lord
Paul requested letters knowing not what was in store
The priest gave him papers, just to validate
That Paul had the right to capture Christians on the way. (MOD)
But on Damascus Road, Paul had a change in plans
His heart and mind were different…touched by Jesus’ hand
Blinded by the light, yet guided by it, too
From a doubter to a witness when he saw what God could do!
From persecuting Christians to the preaching of the Cross
From letters filled with hate, to letters for the cause
Christ was crucified and died, and yet He lives again
Those letters changed from death to life once Paul had met this Man!
After his conversion, he wrote letters to the Church
Teaching many lessons to the old and new converts
I study still today the Scriptures bound in leather
Paul wrote the Gospel story with a brand new set of letters!
From Romans to Galations through Ephesians and the rest
That great apostle tells us how to face each trial and test
His letters to the churches guide our churches of today
And proclaims that Jesus saves the lost, and there’s no other way! (MOD)
