I've Heard Of Those...

I've Heard of Those...


I've heard of those who say they're "happy and gay."

Where are those who proclaim;

"Jesus is the only Way?"


I've heard of many whom

discuss issues like abortion.

Where are they who proclaim

God's plan of salvation?


I've heard of many who dicuss

an "alternate lifestyle."

Where are they...who for Jesus...

 will go "the extra mile?"


I've heard of many who say; "Jesus isn't real!"

Where are those who'll confess HIM

with a passion and a zeal?


I've heard of so many who

 go to many churches too!

Where are those... who to Christ...

say, "I love YOU?"


I've heard of millions who

 are on their way to hell.

Where are those who truly love Jesus?  Can you tell???

I've also heard of a redeeming

savior's  mercy and grace.

His love has been extended to the human race.


I've heard of a master's loving

call and merciful plea...

Where he says; "take up your cross and follow me!"


I've heard of  true gladness

 and overwhelming joy!

This is freely offered to every man, woman, girl and boy!


I've heard that now is the day of

salvation & the accepted time.

For I am his dearly beloved and he is mine!


I've heard that very soon..  Jesus is coming again.

Where are those who desire to be cleansed within?


I know that an abundant life

 is what Jesus will freely gives!

Where you can find true life...

and a reason to live!

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!
