A Friend Forever - Poem by Bob Gotti

Christ will forsake me never; He is indeed my friend forever,
He had offered His life, for me, so that I could live eternally,
And He had approached me first, even as I was at my worst,
God came into my life that day; and Christ moved in to stay.

It began the day I read His Word, about things I never heard,
The more of His Word I read, the more I believed all He said,
About God’s Son and Who He is, and how by Faith I am His,
A child of God’s Own Family; to be with Him through eternity.

He is a Friend, unlike any other, Lord and God, yet a Brother,
The One, who for me, had died, walks daily, right by my side,
As God said He’d never leave, from the moment I did believe,
And He’s with me every day, helping me on life’s Narrow Way.

Christ put me on this path, when for me, He took God’s Wrath,
When with God, I was at enmity; He put God at peace with me;
Removing all my fear and dread, He fills me with hope instead,
While on a path towards Eternity, which began back at Calvary.

On this earth, I never walk alone, since I am one of God’s Own,
While upon that path to Paradise, with my Savior, Jesus Christ,
And as I leave this world of sin, my life with God will just begin,
In Heaven forever I will spend, with my Savior, Lord and Friend.

    Great poem! When I think of how unworthy I'm of the greatest love of all, that is Jesus Christ, yet it's this same love that encourages me to love as JC does. (Report) Reply
