I Need to Be Close to Jesus!

I Need To Be Close to Jesus!


Being close to Jesus is

where I need to be.

I really want to be

with him for eternity!


Being close be his side is the best place.

I need to daily walk humbly

 in his grace!


Serving him is the most important thing.

I want to enjoy the love he brings!


Knowing him brings fellowship

so sweet.

Only then will I be

 made complete!


Staying close to him is

what I must do!

Whatever I face… 

He’ll see me through!


Thank you my Lord,

for your mercy divine!

I’m so glad you’re a friend of MINE!


You bring what no other can give!

I have hope and a reason to LIVE!

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!
