His Shadow

<< Back to the main Stories/poems page

I lay on the street
The fear of the world in me
Unable to walk, unable to see
I heard Him speak
He promised the world
To the humble and the meek
He said come follow me
Now I walk, I see
His shadow passed over me

I stood with spear in hand
His blood from the cross
Fell down on me
My heart so cold is burning now
His spirit has entered me
Never will I die
His shadow passed over me

See how Iíve changed
I fear no more
When I call His name
His peace comes to me
Sweet Jesus has promised me
His kingdom to come
For all eternity
His shadow passed over me.
