What would you do?
What would you do if you were wrongfully accused
and then abused?
If you went about preaching
and you swore that, at any cost,
it would be the lost that you would be reaching
What would you do?
What would you do if because of the words you said
you were beaten with many a stripe
and then being left for dead
you were locked up in a cell with criminals of every type?
What would you do?
What would you do if you had no guarantee
that anyone knew about you
or that ever again you would be free?
What would you do?
Would you have sung praises to the Lord
after having been beaten and threatened with the sword?
Would you have lifted up your head
or would you have been angry over the wounds from which you’ve bled?
What would you do if the earth began to shake
and while you were singing, your chains began to break?
And what if, while those chains fell off broken,
you looked up and noticed that the jail gates flew open?
Oh, what kind of prisoner is he
who cares more for the prison guards life than that he himself escapes free?
What if the prison guard, thinking that all prisoners had fled,
rose up his sword thinking himself to be better off dead?
Would you have been the prisoner that rose your voice and said,
“Don’t hurt yourself for we prisoners are all here”?
Or would you have held your cry
to watch the guard die
so that you could disappear?
Oh what kind of prisoner saves the life of his captor?
It’s the one spoken of in the book of Acts, the 16th chapter.
