His Name

His Name

"She will bear a son and to  name Him Jesus, because He will
save His people from their sins." Matthew  1:21

Father,

Your Son's death
Saves me from death;
His Regal Blood
Ruled over death -- sin's blasphemy.

Truly, His name is Jesus --
"Yahweh saves."

Greater than Moses,
He cares us out of sin's slavery;
Greater than Joshua,
He Captains us to Your Promised Land;
Greater than David,
He Shephers over His people.
(That is, if I let Him."

Truly, His name is Jesus --
"Yahweh saves."

As the Psalmist (42:1)
Pants after living water,
So I for Jesus --
Our Living Water,
Our Womb Water,
Our Birthing Water.
Wateer swelling with grace-bounty.

Truly, His Name is Jesus --
"Yahweh saves."

Father,

In the Name of Jesus, all knees bend; Yes,
Blind see,
Lamb walk
Dead rise, and
Devils flee. Yes,
He is the Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlastoing Father,
The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

And, to think of it --
He was born of a teen-age counrty girl!

Truly,
A Humble God.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
