An Old Time Preacher Praised the Lord
By: Susan Nikitenko
An old time preacher praised the Lord;
Through both thick and thin.
When placed into a nursing home;
Still had joy within.
He rode his wheelchair here and there;
Singing all the day.
He talked of Jesus and His love;
Showing men the Way.
When forbidden to wheel around;
He stayed on his bed.
He did not gripe or grump, nor groan;
But He sang instead.
In glee he served his mission field;
Others watched Him glow.
He left behind a legacy;
It will surely grow.
His children and grandchildren,
Fellowman and friend;
Were all impacted by his joy;
Shining ‘till the end.
Let us sing in times of trouble;
We will touch this world.
Just like that old time preacher did;
Praising our dear Lord.
