Tune: "Seeking the Lost"(verse only)

Verse 1:
One af-ter-noon Cor-ne-lius was pray-ing
In shin-ing clothes a man then ap-peared.
"Send now to Jop-pa for Si-mon Pe-ter,
God now has words He wants you to hear."

Verse 2:
Pe-ter ar-rived with some of his breth-ren.
It was an awk-ward time for the Jews.
They had con-sid-ered Gen-tiles as un-clean,
God had a task they could not re-fuse.

Verse 3:
Pe-ter then preached and to their a-maze-ment
God's Ho-ly Spir-it fell on the crowd.
They were a-ston-ished, Pe-ter then preached
To Cor-ne-lius' fam-'ly. He said a-loud,

Verse 4:
"God has no fav-'rites. You are now cho-sen
To be His child-ren. We will re-joice.
Now be bap-tized with wa-ter," he told them.
They lis-tened and o-beyed Pe-ter's voice.
