Thanks to Calvary

V. B. "Vep" Ellis, @1959.

 You ask me how I'm feeling today,
You ask me if I'm doing okay,
Whenever we're together,
You talk about the weather,
And ask about the folks back home.
It's nice to realize that you care,
And that you have a love you will share,
I'm glad to be replying,
Because I'm testifying,
To tell you how I'm getting along.
Today I'm fine, Thanks to Calvary,
I'm safe forever more,
I'm fine, Thanks to Calvary
I walk with one I adore.
My life was once so meaningless, so empty and sad,
I drifted here and there with the tide,
But since I know redeeming bliss that I never had,
My life has got a purpose,
The Lord is my Guide,
So Thanks to Calvary,
I'll live eternally,
So thanks, thanks, thanks so much,
I'll live eternally, Thanks to Calvary.


  1. Nice poetry! I'll give a hearty AMEN!

  2. 1. God's mercies are new every morning. (Wish I didn't need them every morning, but some mornings more than others.)

    2. Tommy made it safely to Grandview.

    3. Phillip is being faithful with therapy appointments.

    4. It's August in Louisiana and we have air conditioning.

    5. I have friends with whom I can share my strengths and my weaknesses.


"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe." (Hebrews 12:28).
