          The Conversion

Look God, I have never spoken to you,
       but now I want to say, "How do you do?"
You see God, they told me you didnít exist,
       and like a fool, I believed all this.
Last night from the shell hole I saw your sky.
       I figured right then they had told me a lie.

Had I taken the time to see the things you made,
       Iíd have known they werenít calling a spade a spade.
I wonder, God, if youíd shake my hand.
       Somehow I feel that you will understand.
Funny I had to come to this hellish place,
       before I had time to see your face.

Well, I guess there isnít much more to say,
       but Iím sure glad, God, I met you today.
I guess the Ďzero hourí will soon be here,
       but Iím not afraid since I know youíre near.
The signal! Well God, Iíll have to go.
       I like you lots, this I want you to know.

Look now, this will be a horrible fight.
       Who knows, I may come to your house tonight.
Though I wasnít friendly to you before,
       I wonder God, if youíd wait at your door?
Look, Iím crying! Me! Shedding tears!
       I wish I had known you these many years.
Well, I have to go now, God, good-bye.
       Strange, since I met you, Iím not afraid to die.

   "Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ,
   having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men.
   Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ,
   and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father:
   Ye shall have eternal life." St. John 11:25 & 2nd Nephi 31:20   www.LDSCOPS.com
