God's Apostle Paul

There was a man from Tarsus
whose name was Saul
who did all he could
to make Christians to fall
 
But one day he took a trip
to Damascus was his aim
but God met him on the road
and his life was never the same
 
On that conversion road
his eyes became blind
till God’s light shined
to bring him a enlightened mind
 
From that day forth
he was known as Paul
for he took God’s truth
all over to one and all
 
Much suffering he received
persecution, strife and near death
for the sake of the gospel
he sought to speak its vital breath
 
Much time he spent in prison
but God used his time for good
Paul there did write many letters
for the churches spiritual food
 
This man thus became known
as Paul the godly apostle
one who met the risen Christ
his life was indeed colossal
 
Paul’s legacy was his writings
which we still have today
to disciple, instruct and teach us
so we know how to obey
 
His life came to a tragic end
in AD60 when in Rome
Nero sentenced the apostle to his death
in doing so Paul came eternally home
 
What a story his life was
as God made him his own
releasing him from satin’s grip
the purpose to make Christ known
