Just One Look


Controlled by fear

What didn’t you

Remember Peter,

When you said,

I don’t know the Man?


The cock spoke against you,

As a sign prophesized

But you lied- thrice,

And afraid of men

Jesus, you denied.


The honor of knowing

The Son of God

Was thrown on the ground

Rejection unknown

To those around


When your eyes met His,

Weeping, you left the place

With bitter tears

Running down your face,

Remembering your fate.


And exchanging the sword

For a cross, where you laid

As a martyr you died

Crucified for the One

You once had denied!


Who can know

The heart of men?

A mystery, it remains

But in the eyes of God

It shows to be vain.

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
