Brother Michael

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
(2nd Corinthians 5:17)

The toughest guy in our town
the meanest person around
big Mike hails from New Jersey
he knows what’s going down

i try to tell him of Jesus
and of salvation, free
but Big Mike don’t wanna hear it
“You better get away from me”

Oh, but Jesus loves a man
whose name is Michael
wants to meet his greatest need
Outside, Mike is mean
(but) inside he’s hurting
will someone come and plant a seed?

He visits all of the bars
he drives the fastest sport cars
big Mike has lots of women
you’d think he was a star

i try to give him a Bible
to plant a spiritual seed
but big Mike, he is to busy
“I ain’t got any time to read”

Oh, yeah... Jesus loves this man
my brother, Michael
wants to bring him into the band
Everybody thinks
Mike’s lost forever
but Jesus holds him in His hand

The Holy Spirit whispered to me
“Pray for Michael’s soul...”
i thought it was a waste of time
Lord, how was i to know...

A few months later I saw
a sight that loosened my jaw
big Mike reading a Bible
quoting Mosaic law

He spoke for hours of Jesus
and what the Lord had done
now Big Mike lives for his Saviour
and puts the devil on the run

Because Jesus loves a man
whose name is Michael
transformation came, it’s true
Michael’s not the only
one the Lord loves
there is also room for you.

Oh, yeah... Michael serves the Lord
with all his heart, and
We should serve the same way too.
