thank-god-for-the-preacher

Verse I
As I walk down the sidewalk of a sin-stricken city
I see the misfortunes of man
A man in the gutter lying there lifeless
Clutching a bottle in his hand
He was some mother's darling
Maybe some young man's father
But, now he's a prisoner to sin
No hugs in the morning and no family altar
He's gets by the best that he can

Chorus
thank God for the preacher, who told me of Jesus
For I'd be a beggar if not for God's grace
Lord help me show others, your love and your mercy Make my life a witness to others I pray

Verse II
In a little white church house at an old tear stained altar
A prayer for God's mercy was heard
Though her struggles were many and her burdens were heavy
She still took the Lord at his word
and there was rejoicing for she was forgiven
Shouts filled the church house that day
I will never get over that trip to the altar for I was that sinner who prayed
