The Painter

If I were a painter
Sweeping brush in hand
Could I paint a story without tint or shade and
Your attention still command?

If I could make beautiful music
Strumming guitar strings
Would you be compelled to sit a spell and
Listen to me sing?

If I were an orator,
Eloquent and skilled
Expressing my revolutionary views
Could it change your will?

If you were the audience
Of such an artiste
Would you stand and applaud
Or roll your eyes without speech?

In the presence of God
We will all be one day
The Author and Finisher
Of our faith will soon say…

What did you do with
All of your Life?
And what did you do
With my son, Jesus Christ?

Did you believe
In His words painted in red?
The sermon on the Mount
Where Jesus lead

His Disciples and followers
Through The Lord’s Prayer
Teaching the Beatitudes
To and audience who cared

Enough about you and me
To pass His words along
So that centuries would come and go
And His example still stand strong

As the day the greatest orator ever spoke
The greatest author ever wrote
For the greatest singer to portray
What the greatest musician ever played

Jesus spoke with eloquence…and LIVED
Which echoes with His followers in words
The Painter… painted on our hearts
