A Poem About Philip
An angel came, to Phillip talked.
“The Lord said, “You should take a walk.
Go south down the desert road.”
Philip did as he was told,
He saw a chariot going past.
It was moving very fast.
“Go, catch up and get inside,
And with this man take a ride.”
Philip ran along and heard him read,
The scroll from the Book Isaiah indeed.
Philip jumped in with the man,
And explained so he could understand.
With the scroll of Isaiah, he began
To share the good news with the man.
He told about salvation’s plan,
And then the man did understand.
“There’s water. Will you baptize me?”
“Yes, I will if you believe.”
They stopped the chariot and got out.
Went into the water without a doubt.
Philip baptized the man that day.
Rejoicing he went on his way.
The Spirit took Philip to another place.
The Ethiopian no more saw his face.
