The worker I sought in the graveyard
God has fashioned me to be

To bring some soul out of darknes
To help set the captive free

To be a living map to the way back home
For some other mother's child that's been gone too long

He's formed me and fashioned me
And set me up straight
He's empowered and taught me to storm hell's gate

I've learned through darkness, good times and tears
To serve Jehovah-Shamma; Redeemer of years

God led me and loved me all along
And in due season He charged me:
"Help Bring My Kids Home"

This is a poetic excerpt from "Lessons Learned on My Way Home"

"Graveyard Shift" is an excellent poem of few words, yet packed with so much truth and emotion. Well-written!
