Wonder In A Walk - Poem by Smoky Hoss

Took a stroll in the woods the other day,
Ran into Jesus along the way.
He said,
Your eyes are red
And your hearts heavy,
Why don't you stop and talk with me.
So I told him
What kind of man I really am,
He replied, it's o.k.
I understand,
I've covered your sin...
All there is, or has ever been-
As he looked upon me there
The Light flowing from his eyes
Cast deathly shadows
Onto the world's terrific lies-
Into my heart his Kingdom had come
And I realized:
He alone truly is the One;
Oh how the world is covered
With heavy chains,
But none at all
Stronger than his holy name.
I droped to my knees and cried
Thanking him
For not leaving me the same,
He answered with the gentlest tone
You'll never be alone,
I'm always near
Call upon me, listen and you shall hear,
My love so real and true
Speaking in so many ways to you;
You're now merely mortal
So try to understand
And fathom if you can
The depth of these words I say:
' I am not here to condemn;
I came to save. '...

The dust and wind arose
And blew all around,
When I looked up
He was gone,
As if all in a dream
I had barely seen...
But, I swear, in the cool breeze
I could hear a faint, flowing song;
It sounded for all the world,
Like ' Amazing Grace '...
Resounding through
Every time, and every place...

    This has a very nice flow, and the lines I liked a lot were 'Oh how the world is covered
    With heavy chains.
