And That's Pretty Darn Awesome!
And That’s Pretty Darn Awesome!
By Jon Slone
I’m here today, I’m gone tomorrow!
An eighty year span, to God, is a cough!
I get to the end and it’s just the beginning!
I’ve gone a long way yet I’m just starting off!
I feel pretty sure, just to find out I’m bluffin’!
It’s all a dark glass,
A faith-flooded riddle!
I’m smart when it is that I know I know nuthin’!
A puny little pot with a crack down the middle!
I’m undersized, I’m inconsequential!
Yet Jesus left heaven and He died on a tree!
There on the cross while I was still sinning,
My mind can’t fathom this deed done for me!
I sure can’t wait to cry on His toes,
And wipe up the tears with my rough facial-frizz!
Heaven forbid that I boast in the slightest!
Except for the fact that I know that I'm His!
And that’s pretty darn awesome!
"I revel in my nothingness!"
Press on, Pray on, Preach on!
