His Shoes Are Left Empty

His Shoes Are Left Empty

In Honor of the Life of Dr. Stinnett Ballew

June 8, 2019

 

 

I attended a funeral 

just a few days ago,

It was for a man of God 

Who had faithfully served Him so. 

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how. 

 

 

He raised money and men 

For the foreign field,

He encouraged all God’s people 

To give, to go and to yield. 

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how. 

 

 

Writing 24 books to help

All over he did constantly preach. 

Represented on 120 radio stations 

From his words to his actions he did teach. 

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how. 

 

 

His life was consumed for Jesus.

He used all his energy and breath, 

Faithful to his wife and to his God 

All the way up until his death

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how. 

 

 

So many great servants of God 

Have now moved off the scene

Our Christ is returning soon

So let’s live dedicated and clean.

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how.
