I Trust In Jesus - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Before this body turns to dust
Before this world I leave
Upon The Lord I’ve placed my trust
Upon The Rock I’ll cleave


I’ve placed my trust in Jesus Christ
God’s Son of flesh and bone
The innocent Lamb sacrificed
I trust His word alone


I trust He chose for man to die
Then rose again to reign
That as God’s Seed He’d multiply
His flock when born-again


I trust His blood can cleanse the soul
I trust His blood can save
His very name can make us whole
And save us from the grave


I trust in Jesus’ loving care
I trust He bore my shame
I trust the love He came to share
Remains today the same


I trust the pardon Jesus bought
Can save this wretch from hell
I trust Salvation’s true report
My Saviour had to tell


Although the devil’s out to harm
Though Satan’s he’s out to kill
I trust my Lord’s almighty arm
I trust His righteous will


I trust my life to Christ The Lord
I trust in Heaven’s Door
I trust in God’s Almighty Sword
I’ll trust Him evermore…

    Another spiritual poem that offers food for thought. I know punctuation helps poetry, just as exclamation marks help to make the words convey the passion. You might also consider 8 lined verses to keep the reader on track and not scroll down further for a long poem, added to by extra line gaps.

    I admire the Scripture terms used which explain that our Royal Pardon was bought and paid for by the Redeemer promised in the Book of Genesis, when Adam and Eve sinned. Upon sharing your faith, Jesus says He is not ashamed to call you His brother... (Report) Reply

    Acts 16: 31 They replied, 'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.'

    wow amen! I admire your trust in Jesus. I wish I could say in full truth: 'I trust my life to Christ The Lord'... Well, I do, but your faith seems stronger than mine.
