Look to Jesus

Jesus then said, “I am the one who raises the dead to life! Everyone who has faith in me will live, even if they die.” John 11:25

The song of the ruthless is silenced,
But righteousness gives voice.
Look to Jesus and live,
With all your heart rejoice!

Christ came to do His Father’s will;
He redeems and forgives.
With all your heart rejoice!
Look to Jesus and live.

So patient in His sacrifice,
Offering His life by choice.
Look to Jesus and live,
With all your heart rejoice!

Not rushing His moment of glory,
He gave all He had to give.
With all your heart rejoice!
Look to Jesus and live.

    Hi Scotti. Thank you again for the well-expressed poem and reminder to look unto Jesus…and to rejoice…

  2. Well put together and powerful,here’s one you may like. God Bless, Mike.

    JESUS

    For years I’ve searched
    For perfect ways
    To reach Your throne of grace
    I’ve strived and strained
    Read loads of books
    So I would see Your face
    The bibles, I have plenty
    All kinds of different versions
    But everything is easier
    Than long, drawn out, excursions.

    My prayer life, just like a list
    Expounded every morning
    You knew the way that they would go
    You must have found them boring
    My formula was oh so good
    I thought they reached the parts
    Just like the beer, they brought You cheer
    Like fiery little darts.

    But now I have the notion
    That I must try much harder
    Cast off my jacket that is straight
    Start filling up the larder
    Bible study is a must
    So You I get to know
    I need a deep relationship
    So that our love will grow.

  3. Very nice poem, Scotti. I love the mirrored refrain effect. I hope you and your family are doing well.

  4. I don’t know much about the technicalities of poetry, but I sure do like these words: “Look to Jesus and live.” What a blessed truth and what a lovely picture and verse. Blessings to you as you use your gift to the glory of God.
