Rev. Billy Graham

by louis gander  
7/03/2015 / Missions

It seems like only yesterday
when I was sitting there -
with black and white TV turned on -
where one man came to share...

Connected, were the speakers (to
a single microphone) -
that echoed over massive crowds
as seeds of truth were sown.

The seeds from God's own Holy Word
were falling on the ears -
of ev'ry soul attending there
throughout those many years.

The overcrowded stadiums
held people, young and old,
who listened quite intently to
the words that they were told... everyone could know the Christ
that He was speaking of.
His sermons were straight-forward, bold
and unabashed with love.

He loved the Christ who lived to help
the poor, the sick, the weak -
who died to save us from our sins -
then rose for those who seek.

Familiar, that distinguished voice
that boldly spoke the truth.
Familiar was that humble man
who loved the aged and youth.

And as the alter call was sang
through tears, "Just As I Am" -
repentant souls in thousands came
to be with Billy Graham.

My eyes still well with many tears
as I look back and see -
a man who loved as Jesus did
through black and white TV.

It seems like only yesterday
when I was sitting there -
with black and white TV turned on -
where one man came to share...
Thank you Rev. Billy Graham
for your many decades
of unselfish, faithful service
preaching His Word that never fades.
