I Still Love the Lord in the Same

I Still Love the Lord In The Same Old Fashioned Way!


No matter what many people may have to say.

I still love the Lord in the same old fashioned way!


No matter the burden.  No matter the cost!

Christ gave me his life! That day on the cross!


The holiness of my Lord is awesome and very real!

Behold the Lord God!  The God of Israel!


 Jesus has created me. And his word tells me.

Everything about my life...  He already knows me!


He’s called me to give up everything! And follow him!

I want to do what he asks of me, because I love him!


He will help me to be the kind of person he wants me to be.

He has called me to holy living.  Because he loves me!


This way of living, may seem to be “old fashioned” by many.

But the life he gives, is worth more

 than all of  this world’s money!


He gives joy unspeakable! And the half hasn’t been told.

One day soon, I shall walk on those streets of gold!


He gives an abundant life!  This is why he came!

Everything I’ll ever need...  I can find in his name!


The road to eternal life, is a narrow road to travel on.

 Christ is someone I can always depend on!


Thank you Lord!  For your love so sweet!

All of my burdens and worries, I lay at your feet!


You’re worth everything to me! What more could I ask?

I have a heavenly life with you,  that will always last!

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!
