Who Was the Man Jesus?


Born of Bethlehem fame
The Preacher of righteousness
Healer of the blind and the lame
He was not a rogue
Or a scoundrel was He
But a worker of miracles
The Mighty Prince of Peace
He did not come
To kill and destroy
But to save the lost
All good girls and boys
I believe in His words
And I know they are true
They are weighted with love
And they are spoken to you
Who was then Jesus?
I'll tell you the truth
He was the Only Son of God
The Savior of me and you

    Appreciate your poem about your Lord. He is my Savior too. I am humbled when I call myself a Christian because I fail to bring honor to His name with every breath. I have not taken His name in vain, however. Many of my poems testify of His great love and mercy. Thumbs up on this one, Garrett (Report) Reply

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
