When I Needed Someone... Jesus Was
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by James Pemberton




Jesus Was There…


Jesus was there…. When my life hit

“rock bottom.”

All of my problems and worries… 

He reached out and “caught ‘em.”


Jesus was there  When I felt lonely

 and was frightened.

His love shined through, and my life

was “enlightened.”


Jesus was there  After all of my

“friends” disappeared…

His love for me became

so evident and clear!


Jesus was there 

To take away all of my sins!

It’s only in Christ… 

Where true fulfillment begins!


Jesus was there  Very patient

and willing to understand…

For all of my failures...   

He reached out his hand!


Jesus is here right now!

And wants to express…

It’s only in him…

Where there's peace and rest!


Jesus is here right now! 

Won’t you open up your heart?

Spending time alone with him…

Is a great place to start!


Jesus is here right now! 

And forevermore shall be…

Waiting for you to join him…

 For all eternity!

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!
