I Want to Be with Jesus!

 I Want To Be With Jesus!


With Jesus…  Is where I want to be!

I want to be with him for eternity!


I want HIM to be the Lord in my heart!

I want him living in me,

till one day I shall “depart.”


Where HE leads…  I want to be in this place!

I’m so thankful,

for his mercy and grace!


What HE does…  I know it’ll be what’s best!

As long as I trust him,

I shall be blessed!


What HE says to me…. 

I want to be quick to listen!

Anything he has for me… 

I don’t want to be missin’!


Whatever HE wants me to do…  I want to do it!

He’s given me many chances.  But “I blew it!”


What HE wants to give to me… 

I want to receive it!

He promises to always be with me! 

 I believe it!


All that I have…  I give to Jesus my king!

He’s my righteousness!

My everything!


No matter what I may posses…

Or what I own…

I know that one day, I’ll be

in Christ’ eternal home!

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!
