Today... 'The Nazarene' - Poem by Roy Allen

No greater man will ever be seen
than the Lord Jesus Christ the Nazarene
The Son of God and the Son of Man
Who was alive before all life began.
A careful look at His life will show
that He's the greatest man we'll ever know.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Matthew 2: 23
and he went and lived in a town called Nazareth. So was fulfilled what was said through the prophets: 'He will be called a Nazarene.'

Mark 14: 67
When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked closely at him. 'You also were with that Nazarene, Jesus, ' she said.

Mark 16: 6
'Don't be alarmed, ' he said. 'You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.


The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'The Nazarene'




I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene
And I wonder how He could love me,
A sinner condemned, unclean.

Chorus:
How marvelous, how wonderful
And my song shall ever be.
How marvelous, how wonderful
Is my Savior's love for me.

For me it was in the garden He prayed,
'Not my will, but thine'
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat drops of blood for mine.

Chorus

He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calv'ry,
And suffered and died alone.

Chorus

When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
'Twill be my joy thro' the ages,
To sing of His love for me.

Chorus
Charles H. Gabriel
