A Slave Ship Called Jesus - Poem by Ivan Brooks Sr

If Jesus Christ is a slave ship
His name will be called merciful
Onboard I will learn to fellowship
So for this voyage I am so grateful
And Yes I rather be bought by him
knowing I'll soon be set free again
I put my faith in him like Abraham
From him I will have more to gain.

If Jesus christ is a big slave ship
I will become a reluctant stowaway
He will only bless me and let me be
Oh master I pray you take me away
I have waited on you to come for me
From this here hell to eternal life
Oh never again will I be put to shame
Master Jesus save me from my strife
Oh Lord Jesus my divine slave master
Bless me with many of thy holy whips
How long and hard it doesn't matter
Only Your glory I'll avow with my lips.

If Jesus christ is a big Slave ship
For free He will transport my sins
And sign me a spiritual partnership
Adding me to his glorious next of kins
Dear Lord rob me in your holy filths
But cleanse me in your holy water
So that I may amass spiritual wealths
Master come take care of all my needs
And at the end, I'll become cleansed
Like the fowls that the master feeds
I'll be unshackled, free and blessed.

If Jesus Christ is a big slave ship
I am waiting for this spiritual voyage
That's headed for a life long friendship
I know at the end of this epic voyage
With my biblical passport I will decree
I'm Holy Ghost filled and a born again
No more a captive, I'm now finally free
So master let the trip to freedom begin.

    The adage '' God uses the foolishness of man to confirm his wisdom '' can be associated with this poem.An Atheist friend of mine tried to mock Jesus' name.And in so doing, posted the result of his research on fb...it concerned a slave ship called ''Jesus'' from the 18th century..thus this poem.
