ONE DAY I WORKING ON THE BATHROOM
THAT WAS THE DAY THAT STARTED THE GLOOM
TRYING TO FIX A STUPID EXHAUST FAN
MAYBE TRYING TO PROVE THAT I WAS A MAN
STANDING ON TOP OF THE PORCELIN POT
THAT WAS THE THING I SHOULD HAVE NOT
ALL IT TOOK WAS A LITTLE SLIP
AND NOW I AM SCARED FROM MY CALF TO MY HIP
THE NEXT TWO DAYS WAS SO FULL OF PAIN
THE TEARS FROM MY EYES WERE THAT AS OF RAIN
ON MONDAY TO THE HOSPITAL I WENT
NEVER KNOW WHAT ALL THIS MEANT
AS I LAID IN THE ROOM DAY AFTER DAY
THIS IS WHEN EVERYONE BEGAN TO PRAY
FROM OHIO TO FLORIDA TO THE WEST COAST AND BACK
INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS THERE NEVER WAS SLACK
AFTER SPENDING TIME IN A NURSING HOME
THEN IT WAS DOCTER EDDIE CALLING ON THE PHONE
TAKE HIM BACK TO GRANT HE TOLD MY WIFE
WE DID NOT KNOW THAT IT WOULD SAVE MY LIFE
ON SATURDAY IS WHEN THE SURGERYS STARTED
AND THIS WAS NOT FOR THE WEAK HEARTED
AS GOD WAS THERE AND LOOKED OVER ME
AND HE BEGAN TO OPEN UP THE SEA
HE WAS THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
TO COMFORT US IN A SPECIAL WAY
GOD IS MIGHTY AND GOD IS GOOD
HE WAS THERE LIKE HE SAID HE WOULD
AFTER 9 OPERATIONS IN 11 DAYS
THIS LEFT PAM AND I IN A MASSIVE DAZE
TIME GOES BY DAY AFTER DAY
AS PEOPLE ALL OVER CONTINUE TO PRAY
THE DOCTOR WORKED HARD ON MY LEG TO SAVE
WITH GODS GRACE HE ALSO SAVED ME FROM THE GRAVE
HOURS TURNED INTO DAYS,THEN WEEKS,AND MONTHS
SOMETIME I THOUGHT IT WAS TIME TO PUNT
NOW IT WAS TIME FOR CHANGES OF THE DRESSING
AND THEN IT WAS TIME FOR ANOTHER BLESSING
I FOUND A TEAM THAT TOOK CARE OF ME WELL
THIS WAS SOMETHING I HAD TO SELL
CHANGING THE WOUND VAC WAS SUCH A PAIN
I FIGURED WHY NOT I HAD MUCH TO GAIN
THEN AFTER MONTHS IT WAS TIME TO MOVE
AND THIS IS WHERE I HAD SOMETHING TO PROVE
OVER TO DODD HALL TO TAKE A FEW STEPS
AT TIMES IT HURT SO BAD I EVEN WEPT
LIFTING WEIGHTS AND PLAYING BOARD GAMES
WHEN YOU TRY REAL HARD YOU WILL SEE MAJOR GAINS
I WALKED FARTHER AND FARTHER AND DID WHAT IT TOOK
IT WASN'T TO LONG THAT THEY LET ME COOK
PIZZA AND ENCHILADAS IS ALL WE COULD DO
I DON'T THINK ANYONE WANTED BEEF STEW
COUNTING DOWN TO TIME TO LEAVE
IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO HAVE A LITTLE REPRIEVE
AWAY FROM THE NIGHTLY WAKE UPS AND MORE
SOMETIMES I THOUGHT I'LL ALWAYS BE SORE
AND I THINK DAY AFTER DAY
IM ONLY HERE BECAUSE PEOPLE CONTINUED TO PRAY
I THANK GOD FOR ALL GODS PEOPLE IN MY LIFE
OH I THANK GOD FOR MY WONDERFULL WIFE
MY KIDS MY FRIENDS MY MOM AND DAD
THESE ARE THE ONES THAT STOOD BY ME WHEN IT WAS BAD
TO SUM THIS UP OR GIVE A THEME
YOU MUST HAVE A GOD LOVING PRAYER WARRIOR TEAM
REMEMBER WHEN YOUR LIFE LOOKS UNTIDY
GOD IS GOOD AND GOD IS MIGHTY
