Jesus, I Need You To Cleanse Me!

Jesus, I Need You To Cleanse Me!


Jesus, there’s sin that I keep holding on to.

I come to you now, because I want to!


There’s no pretending with you...  I  know it!

You haven’t been my first love, and I’ve “blown it!”


Rather than loving you first, my heart is divided.

I’ve neglected the direction that you provided!


My life has been on a downward slippery slope.

I’ve lost all victory and a reason for hope!


I invite you now, to please come and help me.

I ask that you’ll touch my life and forgive me!


Please come, and by your shed blood, rescue me.

I need your help, because this sin has a hold of me!


I thank you my lord, for listening to me!

I can feel your love flowing through me!


Because of you, my past is washed away.

You’ve given me hope to make it through today!


May my life bring worship and honor to you.

As a small way of saying how much I love you!


You are much more that I could have dreamed of!

You’ve filled me with a love that I can speak of!


Thank you Jesus, for this burden

you lifted from me!

You are always here,

and will never leave 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!
