When Jesus Calls, I Need To Listen!

When Jesus Calls, I Need to Listen!


What was I to do to the savior who called me?

How do I explain it,

to the one who loves me?


I heard him calling my name way back when.

The times he blessed me,

 I don’t know where to begin!


His voice beckoned a message, 

 of peace and hope.

At the time, my life was on a downward slope.


He reached down and brought sweet comfort.

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


He’s with me each day.

 I seek his gentle voice.

Whatever happens in life,

 HE is my first choice!


He’s never disappointed me

on any occasion!

He’s brought to me his love and salvation!


All of my praise to Jesus,

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 glad you’re mine!


You bring nourishment to me

and bless my soul!

I will praise 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!
