What Would I Do without Jesus?

What Would I Do Without Jesus?


If not for Jesus…  What would I do?

I really have no one else I can turn to!


In the midst of all my trials and pain…

I learned to call out on Jesus’ name!


He gave me the assurance that he loves me!

His hand reached down and touched me!


He told me that he loves me and won’t let go.

He brought peace and satisfaction to my soul!


My life for his… The price was already paid.

Through him, a way to heaven has been made!


This joy and love I have, is not my own.

Christ brought his sweetness to my home!


The life he gave is overflowing with God’s best!

He’s brought to me comfort and a haven of rest!


I’m so grateful for what he’s been doing for me!

The chains are gone!  I’ve been set free!


Jesus is beautiful! My best friend indeed!

He’s come and supplied my every need!


What Jesus has done for me, he can do for you!

It’s not secret how much he really loves you!


I pray that his love and mercy

 will bless you today!

Won’t you invite him into

 your life to stay???

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!
