The Bum

He was only a drunkard a bum with no pride.
He was laughed at and sneered at by all; pushed aside.
He was scum of the gutter; worthless, they say.
But, Jesus still loved him and proved it one day.


Christ spoke to his heart and said come unto Me.
I will make you the man God meant you to be.
You can be washed in My blood with a heart clean and
pure.
You will be My new creation, not a bum anymore.


The Holy Spirit now guides him in his walk every day.
He is living for God; showing others the way.
Nothing is worthless to God; this I say.
You see, I,  was that bum God spoke to one day.
