My Journey to God

The Holy Man

Once again
The Holy Man
Embarks upon a journey
Ventures into the land
Where people hunger
To hear stories about God

In rich vivid imagery
He teaches passionately
About the power of prayer
And the promise of a steadfast love
From a God who never lets go

Like Bartimaeus
The Holy Man sprang up
When the Lord called him
Like Bartimaeus
The people yearn to see

He will always journey
Wherever he is called
Because of his love
For the people
And because the Holy Man knows
That their journey
Is his journey too
