Jesus Called Me to Follow HIM!

Jesus Called Me to Follow Him!


What was I to do, to the Lord who called me?

How do I explain it,

to the one who loves me?


I heard him calling my name once again…

The one who cleansed

and took away my  sin.


His voice beckoned a message 

 of love and hope…

My life was leaning on a slippery slope.


Jesus reached out and brought me comfort.

He did this for me, though I made no effort!


I want to listen to and follow his voice.

Whatever happens in life,

 he’s my first choice!


He never disappointed me on any occasion!

He’s brought to me his wonderful salvation!


My praise goes to HIM, whom I love so much.

Just the hem of his garment

 is what I want to touch!


Thank you my Lord for your glory divine!

I’m glad to be yours

and you’re mine!


You bring nourishment to me

and bless my soul!

I will glorify your name, 

wherever I go!

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!
