Tribute To : Arthur Blessitt and "The Cross"
(playing in a theater near you starting Mar.27,2009)
One step at a time he walked into his destiny
Ordained and called by God for this awesome life journey
There's something about a name and his is Arthur Blessitt
An anointed man of God guided by the Holy Spirit
It was on Christmas day in the year of our Lord "1969"
His journey of carrying the cross had painstakingly begun
Although he often wondered if he'd ever survive
Faithful was his God to protect his very life
The obstacles and persecutions were oh -so -very- many
Yet obedient he remained unto his God appointed journey
Almost being killed and jailed his faith would not be shaken
For the glory of God in the cross this journey he'd be takin'
God knew the heart of this precious humble man
It was predestined for God to use him for His plan
To walk around the world into as many as 315 nations
Lifting up the cross to proclaim God's gift of salvation
Never did he fathom a movie to be made of this
Yet God will use his story to bring yet more to Jesus
His miles on foot were over 38,000 breaking a world record
He knows his greatest reward is when God says;
"Well done... my good and faithful servant"
Arthur's journey will continue now by other means
Only God knows ...what or where and even when
Nevertheless what God has planned he will surely do
No doubt it will be preaching the cross to others too
Humble he'll remain as always giving God the glory
It is in God's plan to touch hearts by this man's story
For there is still many souls out there that remain lost
A way to draw men unto Jesus is lifting up the Cross
This man is so anointed in sharing the love of Jesus
Even his name has the word "bless" in it (can I get a witness!)
Nothing is by chance for a man used of God
The footsteps of a righteous man is ordered where to trod
Arthur I just want you to know,my heart you've really touched
Your contribution to the whole world means so very much
I feel such a connection each time I see you on T.V.
I'll either smile or cry from your awesome humility
My precious brother in Christ I am challenged by you
To get the message to others with zeal like you do
Your sweet spirit has truly impacted my life and blessed me
My prayer is that God will keep and bless you throughout eternity
I've waited very long to see the premiere of "The Cross"
I haven't seen it yet but this page may bring others that's lost
So not only is this a tribute to you my brother in Christ and friend
It stands as an invitation for others to be blessed by also seeing
Yea....this weekend I get to see!
Jesus said:If The Cross be lifted up it shall draw men unto me
