A Voice From Above
" Did I tell you I was visited by the lord? "
Our neighbor began to tell...
He lived on a busy road
So I couldn't hear him very well.
I was listening intensely
When a voice from above did say,
" Alright boy-o! How you doin'?"
To a man across the way!
Well! I'm sure my face turned whiter
Than the purest looking dove,
That moment when I too
Heard a voice come from above!
Quite shaken, I slowly lifted my head.
I saw a window wide open.
A hand was waving, a smile beaming
From where the words were spoken!
That neighbor said, " Hello! " to us.
Our conversation suddenly did end.
And this poor man was left confused
By the laughter of my friend!
Of course I knew it wasn't him
Who came when he was sent
For I don't believe that Jesus
Has an Irish accent!
