The Master's Call - Marty Robbins (马丁·罗宾逊)

When I was but a young man

I was wild and full of fire


A youth within my teens

But full of challenge and desire


I ran away from home

And left my mother and my dad


I know it grieved them

So to think their only boy was bad

I fell in with an outlaw band

Their names were known quite well


How many times we robbed

And plundered I could never tell


This kind of sinful livin' leads only to a fall


I learned that much and more the night

I heard my master call


One night we rustled cattle


A thousand head or so


And started them out on the trail

That leads to Mexico


But a norhtern started blowin'


And lightnin' flashed about


I thought someone was calling me

I thought I heard a shout


Then at that moment lightning

Struck not twenty yards from me


And left there was a giant cross


Where once there was a tree


And this time I knew a heard a voice

A voice so sweet and strange


A voice that came from everywhere

A voice that called my name


So frightened I was thinking of sinful deeds I'd done


I failed to see a thousand head of cattle start to run


The cattle they stampeded


Were running all around


My pony ran but stumbled


And it threw me to the ground


I felt the end was nearing


That death would be the price


When a mighty bolt of lightning

Showed the face of Jesus Christ


And I cried "Oh Lord forgive me


Don't let it happen now


I want to live for You alone

Oh God these I vow "words


My wicked past unfolded


I thought of wasted years


When another bolt of lightning


Killed a hundred head of steers


And the others rushed on by me


And I was left to live

The Master had a reason

Life is His to take and give


A miracle performed that night

I wasn't ment to die


The dead ones formed

A barricade least 6 or 7 high


Right behind it there was I

Afraid but safe and sound


I cried and begged for mercy kneeling

There upon the ground


A pardon I was granted


My sinful soul set free


No more to fear the angry waves upon

Life's stormy sea


Forgiven by the love of God

A love that will remain


I gave my life and soul the night


The Saviour called my name
