To Be There
To be there, a spy or a fly on the wall,
To witness history, with them all,
I would be in awe.
The birth of Christianity.
To be there, to witness the feelings,
The healings, while dealing
With Pharisees and the like.
Picking their fights, or at least trying,
To be there, to actually be there…
Smell the air, talk to witnesses firsthand.
Taste the food of the time,
just a small sip of wine...
To be there, my heart in my throat,
To be there as he spoke,
As Jesus actually spoke…
To hear him firsthand,
Hear the Word, from both God and man.
To hear from the source,
Speak with such authority and force.
Just to be there…
To be there to see God's healing firsthand.
To be in the crowd, to hear him call out.
