My Angel

It hasn't been that long ago, my eyes was full of tears.

Feeling so helpless and all alone, worst I felt in years. 

So many thoughts raced through my head, just as I began

 to pray. I never knew of any love to make me feel this way.

When the Lord rushed to me, to take away the pain, and fill

me with his peacefulness , and wash away the shame.

So many mistakes I've made through my life time, But Bishop

Wilson introduced me to his champ, who is now a champ of mine.

I wouldn't trade anything for this treasure found, for he let me see

him through his Glory and placed me on solid ground. 

Oh how I thank thee, for all you've done for me. For all the many 

miracles I could and could not see.

I know now that you are with me, for I have you in my heart. You 

and I a Pete and Jessie a bond to never part.

Lord I need you on my life's journey, to guide me through my days

teaching me to think like you and lay down my fleshly ways.

Putting a smile on your face, means so much to me, so I put my 

hand in your hand and trust you so graciously.

Bishop Wilson, Thank you for how you prayed for us and all the 

words of strength you gave, I realized now that all you wants is 

for us all to be saved.

Though tired in the body, yet going on, on and on, and on and on.

You are a busy man, we all can clearly see, But I have one request

if I may ask of thee: That... when you go before the lord, Please 

remember me!
