A Friend Forever, Jesus Christ - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Though I am down and bear a frown
Because words of sword are always painful
And rejection is always sorrowful.

My human friends called me names.
Words of rejection I earned from them.
But thank God, still I stand...

Jesus came and saved the day.
He removed my sorrows
and gave me laughter...

Thank You Lord Jesus for coming
Without You I'll never be here.
Thanks for Your strength.
Thanks for Your guidance...

To my Friend Forever, Jesus Christ

    To quote those immortal lines 'What a friend we have in Jesus' I also have been putting a few Christian poems on line. I think about 9 start with God, but most of my reads are from page one so they rarely get read. But the sentiment is the same, God is everything.: -) (Report)Reply

    'To my Friend Forever, Jesus Christ'

    wow amen!

    you seem really close to God. I wish I could say that Jesus is my friend but now he's a bit distant, and I seem to know more ABOUT him rather than know him all that well.
