Where Jesus Is, Is Where I Want

Where Jesus Is…  Is Where I Want To Be!


Where Jesus is…  Is where I want to be!

He is the one I want to be with….  For eternity!


Where Jesus lives…  I want to be in my heart!

I want him living in me,

till one day I shall “depart.”


Where Jesus leads…  I want to be in this place!

I want to be led by his tender

mercy and grace!


What Jesus does…  I know will be what’s best!

As long as I trust him…

I shall be blessed!


What Jesus says to me…. 

I want to surely listen!

Anything he has for me… 

I don’t want to be missin’!


What Jesus wants me to do…  I want to do it!

He’s given me many opportunities…  But “I blew it!”


What Jesus wants to give to me… 

I want to receive it!

He promises to always be with me! 

 I believe it!


Whatever I have… 

I give to Jesus my king.

He’s my righteousness!

He’s my everything!


Wherever I may end up in this life

 I call “my own.”

I pray that one day shall be

in God’s eternal home!

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!
