Hometown Wish - Poem by Danny Speicher

My time in this city is dwindling
And, yet, very much I have never said
In all my years, from my birth until now
One might figure, Your Word, I would have spread

Instead I have stayed silent all these years
And I think it's time for me to speak Truth
To stand for what I believe in with love
Speak, boldly, to all men, women and youth

Praising, worshipping the one Living God
Shouting, 'He is the way... Christ is the way'
Loving those who contradict your message
But, still calling out, 'Come to Christ today! '

I have stood in stillness for far too long
Waiting for unbelievers to come, see
But, those who lay dying in this cold word
Have been wounded, and were waiting for me

Even though they don't think they need the One
I will cry to them, 'Come and see... Just come'
And, when they turn their heads and walk away
I will pray for them 'till the day is done

Lord, please be with those in my sweet hometown
Show Yourself to them like never before
Lord, please watch over my church family
Deliver each one to your crystal shore

To my hometown and church, of whom I love
Make strides to know your one true Creator
Keep your hearts open to His call in life
And, seek HIm like you've never sought before
