7-4-15 The Balm of Gilead

Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak:

O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

Psalm 6:2

~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are in the ocean you are wet;

Sin’s in your DNA, the worst disease.

The balm of Gilead will cure you yet;

Beg mercy from the Lord, that healing breeze.

You do not have the strength to overcome

The constant draw of sin that weights your soul.

Cry out your helplessness – God’s will be done,

Christ holds you up to Heaven, light and whole.

A broken bone reminds you constantly,

To take it to a doctor to be set.

Seek Christ: the Great Physician set you free;

He conquered hell and death without regret.

Let go and let the Savior give relief

Depend upon Him always in your grief.

7-27-14 The Doctor Is In

the doctor is in

If you don’t think that you need Jesus now,

And you can get to Heaven on your own,

And all religion’s hogwash anyhow,

That there is nothing you need to atone,

Then go ahead, the Saviour’s not for you.

Your righteous attitude is yours to keep.

He came to save the brokenhearted few,

The poor in spirit wretches, and lost sheep.

Why seek a doctor when you think you’re well?

You’ve got no need of healing anyway.

But you’ve a cancer driving you to hell:

Its name is sin; it’s killing you today.

The Holy Spirit’s telling you you’re sick;

You need the Great Physician Jesus quick!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They that are whole have no need of the physician,

but they that are sick:

I came not to call the righteous,

but sinners to repentance.

Mark 2:17 KJV
