Verse 1:
If through a broken heart
You can make your purpose known
Then I thank you Lord for heartaches
That have come my way
And though I don’t understand
Lord help me rest in your hand
And work your plan in me
And though at times I fear
Let me be still
Let me be still and hear your voice in the night
In the quiet of the night
Lord I need you heart
I need you love
Send you Holy power from above
I will stay true
Though sometimes I falter
I will pour out my heart
To you on this altar I make
I will not forsake
I will be true
Verse 2:
If through the trials you send
Your glory may be seen
Then dear Lord please give me
Strength and grace to rise anew
You are the potter and I am the clay
Mold me and make me in your own way
And in your fire
Purity and refine me
So that I may your vessel be
A holy vessel be

By Bob Hooker

On November 8, 1975, while sitting in his dorm room at Memphis State University, Robert Hooker realized he was miserable deep inside. He really didn’t have anything to live for. He had seen several of his friends die while in high school and college and knew that he too would face death someday. Robert’s heart was in turmoil as he picked up a small Bible and started to read. God’s Word was foreign to Robert and it was hard for him to understand; just as he was about to close the Bible he spotted some verses in the back of the Book. After reading these verses he understood that he was a sinner, and deserved to go to a place called Hell. Robert knelt beside his bed and asked Jesus Christ to save him and give him eternal life. Robert realized for the first time that Jesus Christ was truly the Son of God, and had lived a spotless life. He realized Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose from the grave, just so he could have eternal life. Robert graduated from Memphis State and went on to work at Trinity Baptist Church in Collierville, Tennessee as the Youth Pastor. While attending this church, God called Robert to preach and he, his wife and two daughters moved to Indiana to attend Hyles-Anderson College in January of 1982. Robert graduated from Hyles-Anderson College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pastoral Theology in May of 1985. Later, Robert received his Masters in Pastoral Theology. Bro.
