The Master's Call (Album Version) - Don Edwads

When I was but a young man I was wild

And full of fire

A you'th 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' well 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

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 words I vow

My wicked life unfolded and 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 was 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
