O my dear heart, young Jesus sweet,
Prepare thy cradle in my spirit
And I shall rock thee in my heart
And never more be parted from thee.

But I shall praise thee evermore
With songs sweet unto thy glory;
The knees of my heart shall I bow
And sing that true Balulalow. (‘Lullaby’)

The Revival

Henry Vaughan

Unfold! Unfold! Take in His light,
Who makes thy cares more short than night.
The joys which with His day-star rise
He deals to all but drowsy eyes;

And, what the men of this world miss
Some drops and dews of future bliss.
Hark! How His winds have changd their note!
And with warm whispers call thee out;

The frosts are past, the storms are gone,
And backward life at last comes on.
The lofty groves in express joys
Reply unto the turtles voice;

And here in dust and dirt, O here
The lilies of His love appear!

Poem about Jesus


Baby Jesus

A virgin birth, a manger bed
A lowly stable
To lay His head.

A humble beginning for anyone
It doesnt seem fitting
For Gods only Son.

But God had a plan to redeem me and you
Salvation through Jesus
Offers life afresh and anew.

There Is No One Like Jesus

There is no one like Jesus,
Our Savior and Lord
The message is timeless
The price we could not afford.

On the cross
He bore our shame
Suffering, He died,
Our souls to reclaim.

Three days later
He rose from the grave
Purchased our pardon,
We are no longer enslaved.

Jesus is the Answer

Put your faith in Jesus.
He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Hes the one and only Savior,
Offering hope for toil and strife.

When the burdens seem too hard.
In Him find help and comfort,
Let His angels be your guard.

I Have a Friend Named Jesus

I have a friend named Jesus.
Theres no other friend like He.
I have a friend named Jesus.
Gave His life to set me free.

I have a friend named Jesus.
A perfect, sinless man.
I have a friend named Jesus.
For me He has a plan.

I have a friend named Jesus.
On Him I can rely.
I have a friend named Jesus.
All my needs He will supply.

I Love You, Jesus

Caroline Falzon

when I look at you, crucified on the cross,
I come face to face with the evil of sin.
when I look at you, abandoned by man,
I just want to sing to you in the best way I can.
I love you, Jesus
I love you, so much
stay with me, don’t leave me,
I want to love you until the day that I die.

when I look at you, hung on the cross,
I look into your face, I see my friend.
when I look at you, forsaken by man,
I feel sore to my bones, but forever to you in debt.
I love you, Jesus
I love you, so much
stay with me, don’t leave me,
I want to love you until the day that I die.

when I look at you, in pain on the cross,
my heart miss a beat, tears run down my face.
when I look at you, insulted by man,
I feel your love inside me, your love with no end.
I love you, Jesus
I love you, so much
stay with me, don’t leave me,
I want to love you until the day that I die.

Is Your Name Written Down


Is your name written down in the Heaven up above
It will only be there if you accept God’s great gift of love
His love is the wonderful plan of salvation that he gave
When his only son went to the cross for you and me to save.

He sent his only son named Jesus to be our Lord and Saviour
Jesus came to earth to save us, but with the world he found no favor.
They nailed him to a cross for our crimes and him we did eschew
He said “Father forgive them for the know not what they do”.

Jesus came into the world to save sinners and not to condemn
He said “Your sins are paid for. I am the great I am.”
He went willingly to the cross to save us from our sins
If you trust him with your heart someday to Heaven you’ll enter in.

His Feet

District Elder M.L. Maughmer, Jr.

His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That made His little face glow
When His mother tickled His tiny toes.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
Which at the age of twelve
Made Him stand before those educated well.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That stepped into the Jordan River
And carried our souls deliverer.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That stood atop a mountain high
And proclaimed the Kingdom of Heaven is nigh.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That treaded across countless miles
Bringing hope, healing, happiness, and smiles.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That travelled over sand, rocks, and dirt
Carrying comfort and love to all those who hurt.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That gently bent a blade of grass
Are the very feet that bore the guilt of my past.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That didn’t run when His accusers approached
But held fast His stand in spite of every stroke.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That marched up Golgotha’s hill
Fulfilling God’s purpose and His will.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That were nailed to the cross
Just so I would not be lost.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
Stepped over into captivity
And lead the broken captives free.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That walked out of a borrowed tomb
And through locked doors of an upper room.
His feet, oh, those beautiful feet
That crushed the curse of sin,
Will one day step on earth again,
To judge all history,
And forever reign in victory.
Oh, to sit at His feet,
Yes, those beautiful feet”
Is where I want to be
Worshipping God for all eternity.

Jesus Loves Us All So Much

M.S. Lowndes

Jesus loves us all so much
That He would bleed and die
He took upon His beaten back
The cross that saw Him crucified.

Yes, He loved us all so much
that he was scorned and scoffed
He took it all upon Himself
For it was the will of God.

God knew it was the only way,
the final sacrifice.
Jesus Christ, a sinless man,
would need to give His life.

And even in the gift He gave
We still have not yet known
the fullness of His mighty love
and the grace so freely shown.

All He asks is that we all
Repent and follow Him,
for He has made the way for us,
free from hurt and sin.

Yes, God loved us all so much.
And yes, He loves us still.
He longs for us to trust in Him.
And do the Father’s will.

Jesus Loves Us

Desley Finedon

“Jesus loves me this I know,
for the Bible tells me so.”
This is a very special thought:
to young and old it ought be taught.

God’s love was there before our birth,
even before He made the earth.
In our mother’s wombs He formed our parts;
knit together body, soul and heart.

He loves as a shepherd loves his sheep;
as a mother when her child weeps.
He is our Father, saving, caring,
protecting and our burdens bearing.

His love never fails, is always warm,
giving peace inside when outside’s a storm.
He is gentle too, patient, kind,
and with good thoughts fills our minds.

When we know God loves us so,
we are strengthened to face our foes;
not run away, feeling low,
alone, uncertain how things will go…

For He makes secure, brings hope to life,
boldness to stand for what is right;
changes us to consider other’s needs:
God’s love is shared through kindly deeds.

Jesus loves us: all may know
what the Bible tells is so.

Why I Love Jesus

Alon Calinao Dy

While riding a city bus,
I remember Jesus,
He died on the cross for us,
I asked myself, “What’s the purpose?”
I have so many questions,
Why he sacrificed his life?
I heard different suggestions,
Yet no one really knew His strife.
I have come to know,
That He must undergo,
A word called “sacrifice”,
In order for us to live in Paradise.
This is one of the reasons why,
I love my Lord Jesus,
and why I cry for Jesus,
I love you, Jesus.

Thank You, Jesus.

Bible stories tell us
How great Jesus was.
They tell us his works
and how he loves everyone.
Jesus has shown the greatest love of all.
He has died on the cross
for us to see and live
the home he calls paradise.
So with all our hearts,
let us thank Him for the greatness
He has given us
continuously and tirelessly.

Greatest Gift

He was a gift sent from above
Wonderful news brought by an angel,
Carried by a beautiful, pure woman
to come save us all.

He loved even those who brought him down.
Taught those who wanted to know more,
Healed those who were sick,
and most of all, changed the life of many.
He had supper with the Chosen ones,
prayed for them in the garden,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
and carried a heavy cross up to a mountain.

All those he did to save us from our sins,
to be able to live a great life,
because of the love he had for us.
For all that he has done for us, He is our greatest gift.

Biggest Love of All

Love is a word
all of us know and hear.
But no one has shown
the greatest love but Jesus.
His love is the greatest
for many things.
He came down on Earth
to live with us.
He sacrificed His life
to save us from our sins.
And he came back
as he has promised.
This kind of love is great
for he has done big things for us.
Only the Lord Most High
can make them happen.

Our Brother, Our Friend

God sent us the greatest gift of all,
the only person who knows true love.
Jesus is this person who nourishes us,
mind body and soul.
No matter what we do,
where we are,
who we are with,
it is Jesus who is really with us.
He knows what we’ve been through,
understands all our thoughts,
embraces us with open arms,
even if we do not do the same to him.

Im Living for Him

Im living for Him each and every day
He gave His life for all, to show us the way.

Im living for Him, I feel His embrace.
He took all my sins and died in my place.

Im living for Him what a wonderful peace
His love for me will never cease.

Im living for Him, Im clothed in His glory
Jesus, the only answer, what an amazing story.
