The Land of the Believers


Johnny Cash had a heart of Gold
For the Lord had always told him so
He stood for the memories of the past
He stood for peace, love, and happiness

Because he loved his family and his country
All in all and all in one
We will always remember him as Johnny Cash
Now we all know he has come to rest

We will always think of him
As the country’s best
He had a manager named Lou
That knew Johnny never lost his cool

He had a gentle spirit
Who played nobodies fool
When the doors of Heaven open
He’ll say, St. Peter did you get your man?

For he always loved the Lord
Because he had told me so
He loved his nation
He loved his land

Now all the Nashville Singers sing
“Joy To The World”
He had a daughter named Rosanne
Who was always part of his plan

That all great nations
Should pray, repent, and show mercy
We take this day and pray
Give it back to the Lord

Because Johnny always knew
That Jesus always has a place
For those who pray
As we look through his eyes

The redemption of time
Just likes Moses
He always kept his promises
That one day he would give

Back to this old great world
Lost treasures from the past
Such as the ark of covenant
We’ll always remember, Johnny knew his bible

Preacher don’t you give me a hard time
Because I’m the best, you will ever know
Because Johnny saw visions that must follow:
Rivers, Valleys, and Hilltops

Are places to worship!
To give thanks to the Lord
Heaven holds a place for those that pray
Visions from the past!

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
