The Speaker

(John 4:19 April Conference 1977)

The words he spoke

Did jolt my heart

He voiced my very fears.

He seemed to know

How I had thought

And felt for many years.

He touched upon

So many things

That long had bothered me.

So many answers

I had sought

I hoped he’d tell to me.

‘Tho good he was

He’s mortal, thus

All answers didn’t know.

For God alone

Can comfort me.

To Him, I now must go.
