Poem Written by Wanda:

Praise To My King

He is the Captain of my ship
He is the Anchor of my soul
He is the Pilot of my life
Jesus Christ my Lord and King

I am so glad He died for me
I am so glad He set me free
I am so glad He's here to stay
Jesus Christ my Lord and King

He put a song within my soul
For all to behold
He taught me how to love and sing
Jesus Christ my Lord and King

Someday He's coming back for me
It is His face I long to see
But until then I'll live for Him
Jesus Christ my Lord and King
