Inside Those Walls

One by one they file in
Socks and flip flops on their feet
Some look down. Stare at the floor
But some look up, your gaze they'll meet

Most shake your hand as they walk by
Each one is dressed up in their greens
They sit and listen to the Truth of the Word
Some join in as each of us sings

There is a story on every face
Although not so easily read
Sometimes you see tears, heartache and pain
They've all been places I've never been

Sometimes I get lost in their faces
And wonder what all they've been through
Do they know there is hope beyond these walls?
Do they know that Jesus loves them too?

He loves you, sir. He loves you
No matter what you're in here for
He loves you, sir. He loves you
He stands as the open door

He's the open door of freedom
From past mistakes and sin
He wants to give you hope and a future
If you'll just only let Him in

I am no better than you, sir
I've messed up...I was a sinner too
But Jesus wants to take our broken hearts
Piece them together and make them new

He will meet you in your prison cell
Just reach out and call His name
Because you, my friend, are a treasure
And its for you He took the blame

    Hey Bethany, stopped by for a visit. This is such a wonderful and amazing tribute to our Savior and the profound love He has for us all if we only believe. You have shared His message with us in such a heartfelt and loving way in this beautiful work of art. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Be Blessed, Neva
