“Chosen, from Saul to Paul”


Round up, round up and throw in nick, men or women take your pick,
Hey Master, Master save my sight, will you listen to my plight,
I know you are the Nazarene that I am hunting it would seem,
Why make me blind and have to stay, right here on rocky road today.
Not fully blind not as you say for it will only last three day,
Stand up young man no longer Saul, from now you will be known as Paul,
This is the voice of the Nazarene way up there in the sky would seem,
Be quiet now Paul and listen man and I will tell you why.
You’re picked by hand of the Mighty one, Our Father God on high,
Don’t ask questions Saul or Paul I don’t know the reason why,
But he is the one and only of all those that have gone by,
Whether they are in fire, or in Heaven, in the sky.
Get up my boy and cleanse thy self in front of God repent,
He’ll give you full forgiveness for all your sins have now been spent.
Get done young Paul and get baptised, not all’s as it should be,
Jews! Not for you it now would seem and nor are they for me.
There will be a plot to kill you Paul, outside the safety of your cell,
You’ll be escorted though to Herod and locked up again as well.
Agrippa! He will hear you and your story you must say,
Right through to why the man you were, through God did go away.

    The first book in the new Belief Books series is Robert O Russell's autobiography, 'The Right Way', written to help others. Further works of fiction and poetry, all of a spiritual nature, are to be published early in 2012 and beyond, in print and e-book format. Robert has no doubt that the power of the Lord will use all his books, placed by God within his heart, to help others to be healed and/or come to know the Lord.
