He Was A Great Man: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - Poem by Deidre Dixon

He was a man of strength
He let God lead him in his human weakness
He was a man of vision
He let God’s eyes guide him in a world of darkness
He was a man of courage
He wore the armor God gave him and pressed toward the mark
He was a man of intelligence
He let God’s wisdom speak through him instead of his opinion
He was a man of passion
He let God’s love override weariness in well-doing
He was a man of prayer
He let the Spirit of God give him strategies to gain our freedom
He was a man of greatness
He never tried to steal God’s glory
He was a man of servanthood
He let God’s example teach him how to serve others
He was a man of determination
He trusted God to overcome all fears
He was a man full of life
He loved God and God’s people enough to die for it
He was a Great man
