THE NIGHT WATCHMAN

He sits there stoic and on the side
So you can see him…yet he hides
Almost as if listening…never saying a word
To the whispering of prayers…that cannot be heard
He is The Night Watchman..but who can he be
A spirit from God..or a human like you and me
He never says a word as he opens the door
People walk away as he closes the door
The church doors are locked and no one in sight
Yet if you go there …he’ll open the door at night
When I feel empty and I feel weak
And I cannot breathe and I cannot sleep
I go to the Church .. at home I’m walking the floor
I just walk up the stairs and he opens the door
He never seems to have any eye contact
But there I get solace that is a fact
So whoever this man or spirit may be
I thank the Lord that this man can see
My soul is tortured and I need refuge
If the Church doors didn’t open I think I would lose
Sight of the Lord and and by the grace of his Hand
He has sent the Church THE NIGHT WATCHMAN
