PAPA

THE DISTRICT KNEW HIM AS A CRIPPLE LAD,

THEIR DAUGHTERS THEY WOULD DESPISE

IF HE EVEN VENTURED TO EXPRESS HIS FEELINGS FOR THEM

THEY WOULD ALL TURN ASIDE.

CAN YOU TAKE CARE OF WOMEN THEY SAID,

CAN YOU PROVIDE FOR THEM

THE CHILDREN THAT WOULD COME FROM YOUR LOIN THEY SAID,

WOULD SUFFER FROM LACK THEREIN

BUT GOD LOOKED DOWN ON HIS BEAUTIFUL CREATION

SON I WILL PROVIDE FOR YOU

YOU HAVE NO FATHER OR A BROTHER BUT I WILL SURELY DO

SO HE GAVE HIM A SPECIAL SOMEONE

WHO TOOK VERY GOOD CARE OF HIM

THEY BOTH CREATED A NATION BETWEEN THEM

OVER TWELVE OF THEM

HE GAVE THIS SPECIAL EVE TO PAPA

IN HIM SHE FOUND HER MATCH

SHE GAVE HER TOTAL SOUL TO HIM

AND THEN SHE DIED.

BUT DYING THEY HAD CREATED A STRONG NATION

OF OVER TWELVE FAITHFUL SOULS

THEY BOTH WRAPPED THEM IN THE LOVE THEY HAD FOR EACH OTHER

AND SPREAD THEM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

SOME ARE DOCTORS, TEACHERS, PREACHERS

SOME ARE ARTHESIANS TOO

SOME EVEN CONQUER THE HEAVENS BY PARACHUTING

WHILE THEY CONTINUE TO REMAIN FAITHFUL AND TRUE

NOW, HE SPENDS HIS DAYS WITH HIS SAVIOUR

SECURING THE TEMPLE OF GOD

BY TAKING CARE OF HIS SANTUARY, THE POOR, THE SICK, THE LONELY AND THE SAD

 HE HAS BECOME A DEDICATED SERVANT OF GOD

HIS WILL TO OBEY

HIS CHILDREN RISE UP AND CALL HIM BLESSED

HE IS AT HIS BEST WHEN THEY MEET TO TAKE ABOUT GOD

HIS FRIENDS AND FOES ALSO RESPECT HIM

BECAUSE HE HAS BECOME A TRUE FRIEND OF GOD.

HE PROVIDED HIM WITH A STICK IN HIS YOUTH

TO TAKE HIM ALL OVER THE LAND

NOW HE TRANSPFORMED THIS VERY STICK INTO A ROD

WHICH LEADS THE NATION TO THE PROMISED LAND

LIKE MOSES WHEN HE WAS YOUNG

HE WAS TRAINED IN A FOREIGN LAND

JUST AS HOW GOD HAD TRANSFORMED HIS STICK TO A ROD

HE LEAD A MIGHTY NATION

WHAT IS THAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR HAND?

SOME HAVE THEIR ART, SOME THEIR VOICES,

SOME ONLY THEIR LOVING AND CARING WAYS,

NOW! YOU MUST LEAD OTHERS TO THE PROMISED LAND.

THANK YOU GOD FOR CHOSING PAPA AS THE MIGHTY LEADER

HE HAS BECOME THE SPECIAL VESSEL UNTO YOU

THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING HIM TO BELIEVE IN YOU

SO HE CAN FIND A FREE AND TRUE SALVATION
