I Give My Life to YOU... Jesus!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by James Pemberton

       I Give My Life to You Jesus…


          I have for so long felt

           emptiness within.

          It has felt like my life

           has been in a tailspin.


          I have for many years desired

           so many things,

Never being fulfilled with

 the joy this brings.


Contentment and happiness

 I once thought I had...

Have brought a feeling of emptiness

 and a heart that’s sad.


I give my life to you Jesus

and all that’s within.

For by your shed blood,

 I can be born again!


You give joy, hope and to my life—

a new meaning.

In your arms of love and mercy

 I want to be leaning.


There’s nothing in my life you

 don’t understand...

For you will never

 let go of my hand.


I want to bow my head and

 sincerely confess:

that living for Jesus is

ALWAYS the best!

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!
