I Want to Be with Jesus!

I Want To Be With Jesus!


Where Jesus is, is where I want to be!

He’s the one I want to be with for eternity!


Where he lives, I want to be in my heart!

I want him living in me,

till one day I shall “depart.”


Where he me, is this place I want to be!

I want to his life

so abundantly!


What he does, I know will be what’s best!

As long as I trust him…

I’ll be blessed!


What he says to me, 

I want to surely listen!

Anything he has for me… 

I don’t want to be missin’!


What wants me to do,  I want to do it!

He’s given me opportunities…  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!


Whatever I have…  I give to Jesus my king.

He’s my righteousness!

And my everything!


Wherever I may end up in this life

 I call “my 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!
