Mr. Pike


I was one of those kids who had no church upbringing, so I would get on a bus with my sister and brother some Sundays, and it was in a Baptist church where I first invited Jesus into my heart at the age of eight years old.
Thank you to all the Baptist bus drivers who sacrifice their time each week for all the unsaved children.

Mr. Pike Lyrics

Mr. Pike was right on time
He’s wheelin’ down my road
Singin’ songs of Heaven
On streets not made of gold

Matthew, Mark, Luke or John
Which bus will it be
The old man drove for nothin’ more
Than children just like me

Fill the bus and win a prize
Children bring a friend
So they can learn of Jesus
And know that He loves them

One day I stood waiting
For Mr. Pike to come around
He left me his Bible
And went to higher ground

CHORUS:
And after I’ve come and gone
I know I’ll see my friend
And I’ll ask him for one more ride
Drive me home to Jesus
Just like you did back then
Ill meet you by the curbside again

Sometimes we’d be riding
And he’d stop along the way
All us kids would quiet down
Just to hear him pray

I still hold that Bible
It’s pages turned and torn
That bears the name “John T. Pike”
And the date I was reborn

CHORUS:
And after I’ve come and gone
I know I’ll see my friend
And I’ll ask him for one more ride
Drive me home to Jesus
Just like you did back then
Ill meet you by the curbside again

BRIDGE:
He drove that bus for Heaven
And became a friend to me
The world thought he was nothin’
But he changed eternity

CHORUS:
And after I’ve come and gone
I know I’ll see my friend
And I’ll ask him for one more ride
Drive me home to Jesus
Just like you did back then
Ill meet you by the curbside again
