My Saviour

My Saviour

Once, in my darkest hour, I
Reached for a hand to hold.
I felt that I was drowning and
My fingers did enfold
A hand so strong, yet gentle, that
I knew that I was safe.
He lifted me so my head rose
Above the crashing wave.
He pulled me quickly to the shore
And as my feet touched land,
I looked and saw my Saviour had
A nail hole in His hand.
I fell down to my knees. I cried
And worshipped Jesus there.
He lifted all my burdens and
Removed my every care.
“Now go and help your brothers and
Your sisters in this life,
Until I come to take you home,
Removing all your strife.
For as you do to all of these
So you have done to me.
And by this service you will find
You`ve truly been set free.”

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
