A Dealer in Old Wares
Upon the dusty shelves they
Broken, often useless too,
Cups and saucers vases, toys,
An ornament or two.
The old fashioned gown upon the
Rubs shoulders with a coat threadbare
A lame dress a courtelle suit
A caftan with a certain flair
A woman with a broken heart.
A man who feels he'd rather die,
Punk rock kids, druggies, too,
These are the folk who come to buy
God too is a dealer in old
Broken lives and broken dreams
Sinful hearts and moral wrecks.
Murderers and libertines.
Our Lord can make them new once
Born again to live In Him.
New life. new hope, and self respect;
Set free from Satan's every whim.
We deal not only with shabby
And broken cups and sock with holes,
We deal with men and women too.
We are used by God to deal with souls.
