JESUS



There once was a traveler who was driven out of town;
On his shoulders was a burden that pushed him to the ground.
On his head was a crown made of thorns from a bush,
And the street was so crowded the guards had to push.

They stopped at some sandstone at the top of a hill;
There was a round hole the cross would soon fill.
They made him lie down upon that wood cross;
There they nailed him to prove who was boss.


The beam was up-ended by the muscles of men,
As it plunged down the hole it was carved to fit in.
Then Jesus looked up at the lightning that flew,
And cried, "God, My Father, they know not what they do."

They crucified our Lord as his blood flowed to earth
If inside you believe, you feel what love is worth.
They wrapped him in loincloth when he was taken down,
Then carefully removed his scarlet stained crown.

They placed him in a cave with a large, round, stone door;
Before sealing forever, they lay lilies on the floor.
It wasn't very long, and the stone was rolled away;
For Jesus resurrected, to rise on Easter Day!

I love all Tom's poems. He has listed a few here and they are all so wonderful. I think in one of his posts/threads he mentions the website.

The only thing that I have to do in the am is pop the sticky buns in the oven, hide the eggs, peel the potatoes for mashed potatoes and bake the ham and turkey.

Thank you all

JESUS IS MY MASTER


Jesus is my master
I'm not afraid to admit.
All I had to do
Was be willing and submit.

He loves me when I'm bad
He loves me when I'm good.
He loves me even more
When I behave as I should.

He knows that I'm not perfect
He knows I'm guilty of sin.
He leadeth me to righteousness
And allows me to rise again.



JESUS IS A FISHERMAN


Jesus is a fisherman
Who saves the souls of man.
Dead or alive he leads the faithful
To the streams of promise land.

He sees us when we’re happy
He hears us when we’re glad.
He whispers words of hope to us
When we face something sad.

As wicked thoughts control the mind
Evil deeds control the heart.
Jesus is who we turn to
When from sins we must depart.

Jesus is a fisherman
Who baits his hook with love.
Casting his line in your direction
From the banks of heaven above.
