Pastor Poetry
When you’re gifted, you’re gifted.
When you are called, you’re called.
No matter how big,
No matter how small
You will win every assignment and giants will fall.
When you’re gifted your gifted
When you are called, you’re called.
I said no matter how big, no matter how small.
Remember you have the anointing, and he will outshine them all.
Rise and shine for the glory of the Lord is risen my son.
Stand still and see that the battle is not yours, but You are the vessel to conquer
these shores.
When you’re gifted, you’re gifted.
When you’re called called.
