One Such As I

 


Sometimes I sit and wonder:  Why do You love one such as I?

I who have been so wicked; I who have not obeyed;

I who, rather than walking close to You,

have so often and so far strayed.

 

When I'm faced with the choice of obeying

Or going my own way,

I too often follow after pleasure,

Day after day after day.

 

How can I be so foolish

To forfeit such a prize,

And give up such a blessing

By listening to Satan's lies?

 

Instant gratification

Is a worm on a sharp hook;

Immediate but short-lived pleasure

Was all the bait it took

 

To drag me to defeat 

And destroy me with sin,

But, crying out in repentance,

I looked up, and there You were again,

 

Ready to forgive me,

Stretching out nail-pierced hands,

Across the chasm of my sin,

Your perfect love spans.

 

Sometimes I sit and wonder:

Why, Lord?  Why do You love one such as I? 

Why did You sacrifice Yourself

And for such a lowly sinner die?

 

"It's because I love you,"

Would be His compassionate reply.

"For you I left Heaven; for you I tasted death.

That's how much I love you, and that's why I did die." 

 

Oh, Heavenly Father,

Intimate Lover of my soul,

You sacrificed Your own Son for me;

Therefore You do I extol.

The Easter Song Spoof

Here comes Peter Cottontail,

To lead you down the road to Hell,

Hippity, hoppity, Easter's on it's way.

 

Bringing every girl and boy,

Lies that steal away the joy

Of the Truth that Jesus

Rose again that day.

 

He's got fairy tales for Tommy,

And he'd never tell sister Sue

That Easter is when Jesus

Overcame death for you!  Oh!

 

Here comes Peter Cottontail,

Covering Truth with a tale,

Hippity, hoppity, Happy Easter Day!

 

Here comes Peter Cottontail, 

Carrying a deceptive veil;

Look at him hop and listen to him say:

 

"Try to do the things you should;

Maybe if you're extra good,

God will let you into heaven one day."

 

You'll wake up on Easter morning

And you'll know that he was there,

When you find those chocolate bunnies,

For Christ you'll no longer care!  Oh!

 

Here comes Peter Cottontail,

Hopping down the bunny trail,

Hippity, Hoppity, Happy Easter Day!

If God Made

(This is a poem I wrote for my goddaughter Susanna for her birthday.) 

If God made flowers

So beautiful and sweet;

If God made mountains

Whose majesty can't be beat;

If God made peacocks

With colors to dazzle the eyes;

If God made rainbows

To paint the skies;

If God, the greatest Artist,

Makes only beautiful things (which is true),

Then God made a wonderful, beautiful

And sweet person, when He made you.
