In this crazy mixed up world of ours,
Someone jumps right out in my mind.
He came to Christ, but lost his way,
From Jesus’ path declined.
I still remember Mike,
But don’t know where he’s at.
How he played acoustic guitar
And wore that cool plaid driver cap.
After he left the Church for good,
A brother spoke this line:
“Remember Mike in your prayers,
That he’d come back to Christ and find.”
I’ve remembered Mike throughout the years.
I wish that him, back to Jesus, I’d see
Because I think he was oh so close
To finding eternity.
Wherever you are tonight
Before you turn out your light,
Pray for those who’ve wandered from the Light,
And please, oh please, Remember Mike!
