I can't recall each word you said
when you visited me on that day.
I do recall the love you shared
That helped me on my way.
On an old half torn envelope
salvation's plan you drew.
Thirty years now have passed
possess this still, it's true.
A memento of a time gone by
of a Savior I'd just claimed.
Of a Godly man showing concern
Brother Waldo he was named.
I had accepted Christ, just days before
Reinforcement was now my need.
I still thank God, that you came by
and for my soul did intercede.
The cancer that my body had
a life filled with sin and shame.
By God's own hand had been removed
now I'm praising His holy name.
Fully aware of it being my last chance
in God's work I now aspire
For God had finally struck the match
God, had set my fields on fire.
