Because Jesus Lives, I Can Face Tom

Because Jesus Lives, I Can Face Tomorrow!


Because Jesus lives, I can face tomorrow!

He came and took away my sorrow!


Because he lives, I have true love within!

I have found in Christ, my best friend!


Because he lives, I have peace I never knew!

He gives new meaning to “I LOVE YOU!”


Because of his grace, my life is firmly planted.

There’s nothing in life, that I take for granted!


Because of his sacrifice and death on the cross…

I have an assurance when everything seems lost.


Because of his forgiving and soul cleansing power…

I have what I need to make it through the hour!


Because of all this, and everything he’s done for me.

I’ve received a brand new life,

 so abundantly!


He can do the same for you!  Won’t you let him?

Once he’s touched you.  You’ll never forget him!


He can do what no other God could ever do!

He can completely change

and make you brand new!


Because of Jesus, we can face the next day!

Christ has gone before us and made a way!


A way to know and to completely trust him!

All one has to do, is accept and receive him!

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!
