On My Knees

Praise the Lord
Worthy is He
I come before Him
Down on my knees
Seeking His mercy
Longing for grace
Hoping that soon
I’ll see His face

Jesus my Savior
You’re me redeemer
Lamb of God died for the sins of the world
Rose again bringing
Eternal Life to me
Sending your Spirit to reveal the Word

Praise the Lord
Glorious in splendor
Worship His holiness
Forevermore
Seated in heaven
All creatures before Him
Bowing their heads
Falling down on their knees

Jesus my Savior
You’re me redeemer
Lamb of God died for the sins of the world
Rose again bringing
Eternal Life to me
Sending your Spirit to reveal the Word

Down on my knees
I sing hallelujah
Down on my knees
My head bowed down low
Broken before Him
Needing forgiveness
Worthy of nothing
Have mercy on me

A Resounding Change

My ears are often funny|
In looks and sounds I fear
There is a constant ringing
That is often all I hear

I can’t wait to get to heaven
That ringing sound will change
To the titinnabulnation
Of the angel chorus praise

Holy holy holy
Great and powerful is He
Jesus Christ our mighty Savior
By His blood He set us free

Holy holy holy
To the Lamb upon the throne
Great in Majesty and Mercy
Our praise to Him alone

Planning on Heaven

I’d always been planning on heaven
Ever since I was a lad
My church taught that we
Would go there for free
For Jesus had paid the tab

Then I learned there was one complication
That I had not learned before
If I don’t repent
My sins won’t relent
Jesus must be made my Lord

So I knelt down there in the church pew
I asked Jesus into my heart
He took away
My sin stains that day
He gave me a brand new start

In response to the daily prompt Complication

No Pretending

I look around at all the people running to and fro
I cannot help but wander where they all will go
For one day soon the clouds will part above
Jesus will return and gather those who He does love

I cannot look and see which ones will go with Him that day
I cannot determine who has followed in His ways
You see there’s only one thing that will qualify us then
Only one slight difference that no one can pretend

We must have Jesus as our Lord and Savior of our lives
We must have seen out wretchedness and asked Him to forgive
We must have turned away from things displeasing in His sight
We must now walk with Him each day and follow in His light

Will you be one to rise and meet Him on that fateful day
Will you avoid the wrath of God that’s coming anyway
If you have not decided yet and given Him your heart
Make today the day that you ask Him to be Lord

In response to the daily prompt Slight

He’s Always Enough

When I think of His mercy
His wonderful mercy
My heart has to give Him praise to

And when I think of His grace
Amazing grace
I lift up His holy name

When I think of the day
He died for me
I’m awed by His undying love

When I think that He’s with me
Every day
I know that He’s always enough

He’s always enough for me
He meets all my deepest needs
When I was lost
He paid the cost
He’s always enough for me

When I think of this world
And all that it offers
It simply cannot compare

To the blessings He promises
In His word
They come true to me every day

When I think of the heaven
That waits for me
Because He gave His life for me

I’ll keep pressing on
To draw closer to Him
And one day His face I will see

He’s always enough for me
He meets all my deepest needs
When I was lost
He paid the cost
He’s always enough for me

Return to Jesus

i was raised on Jesus
The church a second home
Throughout my high school years
i hardly ever roamed

I then got into crowds
That drew me far away
And i became a rebel
To sin I deeply strayed

But Jesus kept on calling
Throughout those rebel years
Til finally I returned to Him
And shedded many tears

He never will give up on us
He always wants pur hearts
If you have fallen far away
I pray that you’ll restart

Restart your trust in Jesus
He’s always by your side
Restart your trip to heaven
With Him you will abide

The Day of Salvation

I dreamed I was rising to heaven
Jesus waited for me in the clouds
He had come back just as He promised
The trumpet had sounded aloud

I could see others rising beside me
All colors and ages were there
This day we had all been awaiting
When we would meet our dear Lord in the air

Then I looked for my friends and my neighbors
There were many making the flight
But several were not rising with me
I feared they had not seen the light

They had not asked the Lord to forgive them
Of the sins that He died for that day
They had not asked Him to be their Savior
They had not followed in His way

I know I had told them the good news
That Jesus had died for their sins
But they never decided for certain
Thinking there would be time in the end

For a moment a sadness was present
At knowing they were left behind
But His joy quickly came in and calmed me
As His presence filled up my mind

I hope if you’re reading this poem
That Jesus is Savior and Lord
If not take a moment this instant
To give Him your heart and your soul

For we don’t know the hour or the moment
When He comes there will be no more time
Today is the day of salvation
It is time to make up your mind

Trudging Along?

Many people go through life
Trudging from day to day
They don’t have a spring in their step
They are not quite sure of their way

The thing that there missing is easy
It’s a hope that is steadfast and sure
When we put all our trust in Jesus
That glimmer of hope is assured

In fact it’s no longer a glimmer
But a bright shining light up ahead
When Jesus is Lord and Savior
Then Heaven a bright light instead

So set your mind squarely on Jesus
Let Him be your guiding Light
No longer will life be just trudging
You’ll find it is sunny and bright

Forever Over All

The time is coming soon
When Jesus will return
The clouds will open wide
The trumpet shall be heard

He’ll come for all the saints
Who are faithful to His word
They will meet Him in the air
Forever with our Lord

We’ll sing glory hallelujah
Holy is His name
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Holy Holy Holy
Is the King of Kings
Forever over all He shall reign

In one blink of an eye
The scene above will come
Are you ready for His call
Have you made Him number one

If you haven’t now’s the time
Bow your knee and call to Him
He is ready to forgive you
And cleanse you from your sin

We’ll sing glory hallelujah
Holy is His name
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Holy Holy Holy
Is the King of Kings
Forever over all he shall reign

Catch That Flight

Running through the airport
MIddle of the night
Jump on the conveyor
Have to catch a flight

My time is a wasting
The gate has opened wide
Arriving there in time
I sit and breathe a sigh

Another flight is coming
To take us all away
Jesus will return
Are you ready for that day

The conveyor of all truth
He said to trust in Him
Ask Him for forgiveness
Make Him Lord within

Don’t be in the position
That you haven”t bowed and prayed
To make Him Lord and Savior
Before the final day
