Judgement Day

Judgement Day...

I wonder what I'm really going to say.
As I stand before God on Judgement Day.

Will I have done my best? This... I really doubt.
As to God... I'll have to give a full account.

For this life, will I be proud or ashamed?
That day that God calls out my name?

His son gave his life that I may live.
What, in exchange, did I really give?

I know Jesus is here to help me each day.

When I need help...he'll make a way!

As Christ's blood ...in my life...is applied.
There'll be nothing in me I need to hide.

In answering to him the way I've been livin'.
And accepting his precious blood... I am forgivin'.

For Jesus, I'll continue to try my best.
So... on that day... he'll say; "enter my haven of rest."

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!
