Paul and All

Paul didn’t ask to be saved.
He was out “serving God”
But was really depraved.
To his laws and traditions
Was fully enslaved,
And still
He didn’t ask
To be saved.

Paul didn’t ask to be blinded.
He was off on the road
And was feeling high-minded,
When the force of the Light
And the Lord’s harsh words grinded,
And then
He was standing there

Paul didn’t ask for correction.
He was sure he was right,
Walking life with perfection,
When Jesus called out
Gave his heart new direction,
Even though
He didn’t ask
For correction.

God doesn’t wait for our asking.
When we’re dead in our sins
And don’t care and sit basking,
He comes and he calls us
And starts the unmasking.
So I’m thankful that God
Doesn’t wait
For our asking.
