Jesus, I Want to Honor YOU!

Jesus, I Want to Honor YOU!


Jesus, may you be honored

 by what I do and say!

I invite you to be my Lord today!


May your spirit bless the day

 that’s before me.

I’m blessed to know that

 you always with me!


May your blood be applied

 to wash my dark stains.

I need to be doing things

that won’t bring you shame.


May your words each day,

help me to be strong.

It’s in your loving arms of mercy

 that I belong!


May your mercy keep me

 on the narrow path.

I don’t want to be in danger

 of your holy wrath!


Thank you, my sweet Lord,

for listening to my plea!

I need so much more of you,

and a lot less of ME!

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!
