What This World Can Never Give...

What This World Can Never Give…


What this world can never give,

 is life eternal!

Jesus can guarantee your name,

 in heaven’s journal!


The world can never bring to you,

what Christ can give!

Jesus will never fail you,

 and can give a reason to live!


This world can promise you a whole

 “field of dreams.”

But can never give the joy and peace

 that only Jesus brings!


The world shall one day

 be totally destroyed within!

Only Christ can help you!

And will always be your friend!


Heaven and earth shall one day pass!

 God’s word is forever!

Christ loves you so much!

 You can be with him, together!


Won’t you follow Jesus?

 And leave this world behind you?

Allow his Holy Spirit and love,

 to totally surround you!


Take this world!  But give me Jesus!

 Is this your plea?

Won’t you make plans to be with 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!
