The Master's Call (Live from Cowtown Version) - Waddie Mitchell

I was but a young man

Wild and full of fire


A youth within my teens full

Of challenge and desire


I ran away from home

And left my mother and my dad


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 norther started blowin'

And lightnin' flashed about

I thought someone was calling me

And I thought I heard a shout


Then at that moment lightning

Struck not twenty yards from me


Left there was a giant cross

Where once there was a tree

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 words I vow"


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 meant 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 Savior called my name


I gave my life and soul the night


The Savior called my name
