Christ's Death on The Cross

Christ’s Death on The Cross…


Christ died for me…

I didn’t deserve it!

His life for mine… 

He preserved it!


His gift of salvation…

 I received it!

After reading John 3:16. 

I believed it!


His hand of mercy has graciously

 been extended…

My broken life has now

 been “amended


I’m thankful for what

 Christ did for me.

His gift of love is now

 plain to see!


Throughout life, often facing a

“difficult circumstance…”

Jesus has given me hope.

 And a second chance!


I’ll try my best to live as he

 would want me to…

Without him…  I have no one else

 I can turn to!


Thank you Jesus!  For being

 my best friend!

You washed me clean…

 And took away my sin!


You've done what you said... 

And so much more!

You’re certainly

 worth living for!

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!
