Jesus, I Lift Your Name Higher!

Jesus, I Lift Your Name Higher!


Jesus, may it be my passion and strong desire.

To bring honor to your name

 and lift it higher!


May I be the example you want me to be.

That it would be you that others would see!


May I strive to spend time with you alone.

And allow you to be the lord of my home.


May I seek to daily meditate on your words.

Your words of life need to be stirred.


May I want to tell others of your loving name.

And not bring embarrassment or shame.


May I allow your goodness to fill my soul.

And to walk humbly wherever I go!


I need you Jesus!  More than ever before!

You bring an abundant life,

and much more!


You are the one that fills me completely!

And have blessed my life rather sweetly!


I lift up your name!  It’s your life I choose!

You give unspeakable joy

 and eternal GOOD NEWS!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
