2-17-15 My Redeemer Lives (An Acrostic Sonnet)

my redeemer lives

My Savior lives! Yes, my Redeemer lives!

You can’t deny it when He touches you!

Reach out to Jesus; He your sin forgives!
Each day you walk with Him you’ll know it’s true!
Descended from our Father Christ became
Equipped to be a servant unto death.
Embrace the Savior now – He knows your name.
Make Jesus your Redeemer with your breath.
E‘en though the worms may feast upon your flesh,
Rejoice! You will be resurrected soon.

Live now for Christ; when He returns afresh
In glory, you’ll arise and then commune!
Victorious in Jesus, have no fear!
Escape the bonds of death, your Savior’s here!
Surrender all to Him right now, my dear.

25 For I know that my redeemer liveth,

and that he shall stand at the latterday upon the earth:

26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body,

yet in my flesh shall I see God

Job 19:25-26 KJV

12-12-14 My Redeemer Lives!

He Lives

I know indeed that my Redeemer lives!

He lives in me, and He can live in you!

The proof is in the love He always gives,

And you can feel His love move through you, too!

The things that fill this earth will pass away,

And all of your possessions turn to dust,

But He will stand here at the latter day,

And you will too if you give Him your trust.

He calls out to your spirit, heart and soul!

He died for all your sins then rose again!

If you answer His call He’ll make you whole,

And then you’ll feel Him live in you, amen!

I know that Jesus lives forever more;

Just take His outstretched hand, this I implore!

Job 19:25 KJV

10-26-14 That Shall Stand

Lion-Lamb

The mind of man keeps changing all the time,

For as his passions rise so does his will;

Man’s heart is prone to crawl and then to climb,

Then drag him to his doom to get it’s fill.

A man will hold belief until it bleeds

Then drop it like a rock for something new;

He wanders through the earth until he pleads,

Beseeching God to tell him what to do.

The counsel of the Lord is pure and whole,

To stand inchanged throughout eternity,

And when we yeild to God our heart and soul

And give our life to Christ, then we will see.

In love we’re made, in love we’ll cease to roam;

The drumbeat of God’s love still calls us Home.

~~~~~~~~~~~

There are many devices in a man’s heart;

nevertheless the counsel of the LORD,

that shall stand.

Proverbs 19:21 KJV
