Remembering Billy Graham (1918-2018)

This poem is in memory of the Revered Billy Graham, who was called Home at the age of 99 on February 21.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” – John 14:6

There have been many preachers
who stand out in the crowd.
Who present the Salvation message,
delivered clear and loud.

But not all stay the course,
from beginning to end.
They don’t put in time and effort,
to become God’s friend.

He spent the time praying the Word,
and listening to hear God’s Voice.
This one invested in God’s calling,
he made a life-changing choice.

He evangelized throughout the world,
but could’ve ministered just at home.
Wherever God was leading, he went,
he never walked alone.

From peons to heads-of-state,
the message was always the same.
Accepting Christ into your life,
Jesus wiping out all blame.

The man had a mission,
and would not be deterred.
He loved his calling,
that’s all that mattered.

Now his body is at rest,
waiting for the trumpet sound.
When all the Earth will give up the dead,
as they rise up above the ground.

And all who knew Him,
will rejoice in what they’ve waited for.
They’ll join the Lord in the air,
their soul to live forevermore.
