Get Your Eyes On Jesus!

Get Your Eyes On Jesus!


Many have taken their

 eyes off of the cross…

Having deaf ears, 

not counting the cost!


Being content in their pride

and selfish way…

Refusing to listen to what  

Jesus has to say.


Many come to church, pray

 and sing a song…

Forgetting that it’s at the cross

where we all belong!


 “To live is Christ.  “

“To die is to gain!”

We must love and follow Jesus.

 It was for mankind he came!


May God’s spirit bring us

to a repentant sorrow...

Let’s share the message of salvation,

today and tomorrow!

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!
