Macedonian Call: Acts Poem 16

The jailer woke up to see the prison doors wide open. He assumed the prisoners had escaped, so he drew his sword to kill himself. But Paul shouted to him, ‘Stop! Don’t kill yourself! We are all here!’ The jailer called for lights and ran to the dungeon and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. Then he brought them out and asked, ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ – Slide 8
Philippian Jailer – Free Bible Images

In Troas a dream of significance

Groundwork for Europe’s salvation laid

A Macedonian in a dream

Beckoned Paul to come and his people aid

So the Word of the Lord

Into Greek lands was carried

But it was not long before the saint

Was by opposition harried

Into gaol he was cast, but even there he prayed

And a earthquake great his bonds broke

And convert of a Philippian jailer made
