THE STRANGER

He stood on the corner, looking up at the clouds.
Thunder was starting to groan.
Though he made no sound, the message was loud -
this was a man with no home.

I watched , while waiting for the bus to come.
I had to admire the man's way.
His clothes were shabby, and he was alone,
but dignity showed anyway.

Chorus
Who knows his story ? I wondered.
Who knows his name, and his past ?
Again came the roll of thunder.
The storm was moving in fast.
He stood there as straight as a pillar.
It was plain he had weathered some storms,
but Faith is a character builder,
and can carry us through in a calm.

My bus came as raindrops were starting,
blocking my view of the street.
I was regretting the parting.
I wished we had had time to meet.

I found a seat where I would pass close,
to see him as we passed so near.
But he was gone, like a vanishing ghost.
In that minute, he'd just disappeared.

Repeat Chorus
