From Cross to My Being

From Cross to My Being
By Arley Steinhour 072311

Nineteen Hundred and Six years passed by
From when Jesus died on the Cross
A Ten pound baby came to crash the party
To show the world who's Boss

This baby, I will tell you now
I see each day in the mirror
Having lived a life of blessings
Most great, but some in terror

Born to the trusty scalpel
by the Doctor skilled to cut
Too big to enter life normal
Twas my head, and not my butt

Infant years spent in terror
of being left beside a road
or murdered in a beating
for a child a heavy load

Enduring War, and Tribulation
then came my teenage years
He led me to athletics
instead of drinking beers

High School grades made me wonder
If I had a welcome place on earth
D's and D-minus plenteous
This young rock, held an upper birth

The teachers frowns were many
Always on their scowling face
I wasn't even an also ran
Allowed not, to even run the race

Some way, the time arrived for me
Graduation, a wondrous day
I was now an adult
Or at least well upon my way

Some years later from a dear friend
She confided her fear to me
I'd end up going to prison
Never more to live life free

The Navy thought some different
according to my score
I qualified for higher training
They offered much and even more

Away I went to see the world
Trained in Dit's and Dah's
A skill I thought I'd never learn
At Radio station, there I was

To bore you with my life story
Of wife, plus children and such
I'll pass on that till a later day
and thank you very much

The years I cited brought me typing
To bend your eye a while
Jesus is the one who saves you
To you, Him I witness with a smile.

So, open up your Bible
Find the man from Galilee
Surrender All Sin over to Him
Live all Eternity with Him, and even me. (^8
