A Talk With Jesus
I sat and I wept, my words were at loss.
I'd stumbled and fell 'neath the weight of my cross.
I was humbled and saddened, my heart filled with shame.
Divested at failure, my soul full of blame.
Then I heard my dear Savior say, without much ado.
"Child, I stumbled and fell 'neath my cross too!
Bruised and bleeding, thirsty and torn,
And upon my head was a crown of thorns.
Weary and discouraged (I WAS human, TOO!!)
God lifted ME up and I went on for you!
He sent a Roman to carry MY cross,
So that my death wouldn't be YOUR loss!"
I cried out to Jesus-"But my wounds are so many!
My innocence lost-my sins are plenty."
And He replied, "But that's why I died on that tree!
To give eternal Life...from sin set you free.
I cried to our Father, "Release me from this cup.
An then I died and He lifted ME up!"
A sudden peace appeared on my face.
I was filled with His Glory, washed clean in His grace.
His words were not lost on my heart and my soul.
He'd given His life to make me whole!
"Not MY will Father, but THY will be done!"
Then His life was ended...My life just begun!
"As long as I have strength to walk,
I'll walk along His way.
As long as I have words to speak,
It's words for Him I'll say!
As long as I have breath within
I'll sing a song of Praise.
For I know when He calls me home,
I'll have peace for all my days!"
"He didn't teach me to swim to let me drown!
He didn't lift me up to see me fall down!"
