Elisha

A prophet of the people

Meeting men’s need

Bringing to life a son

A leprous to health

An axe head to float

At the cry of the people

Alas, it was bowered

Elisha, it restored


Hearing the cry of a widow

At the horror of losing

her two sons to slavery

No money to pay her debt

A jar of oil, that’s all

Under God’s power

The oil multiplied

The servant of God satisfied


Elisha walked with God

With faith to see the unseen

With just a prayer

His servant saw

Mountain filled with horses

Chariots of fire round about Elisha

To defeat the enemies

of that hour!


His heart followed

God’s heart with

Help for all until

Old and gray

He died in time

The people’s voice

Now echoing

Elisha, for you we cry


A true prophet to earth

Closed his eyes

In heaven he arrived

His final resting place

Where God and angels

For him waited

And him greeted

Well done, My servant!

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.
