What About Me? 6-06

.
What about me? Who will atone?
What can be done? I am alone.
Life's so unfair. How can this be?
Oh, what did my God do for me?

God made some to be a king,
And to a crown we often cling,
They give their law through their decree.
But what did my God do for me?

God made some to be so rich,
Some born into - without a hitch;
Wealth and power in large degree -
But what did my God do for me?

God created everything,
On earth - gave life and made it sing;
He sent His Son for us to see -
But what did my God do for me?

Yes, God came - a virgin birth,
A miracle - right here on earth!
And He holds, the only key -
Is this what God has done for me?

Jesus threw demons into swine,
And turned some water into wine.
He raised Lazarus perfectly -
But what did Jesus do for me?

Jesus slept upon a boat,
But His disciples stayed afloat -
Despite huge waves upon that sea -
But what did Jesus do for me?

As Jesus traveled on the road,
His miracles of healing showed.
He cured the blind so they could see -
But what did Jesus do for me?

Barren, worthless, not one fruit,
A fig tree stood which had no root.
Jesus spoke - withered the tree -
Is that what I have done to me?

Oh, His mercy and His grace,
He loved the world - all - every race.
Through faith in Him, He set me free!
Yes, that's what Jesus did for me.

  1. Hi Louis, I see you've got me on the map there.
    Little scary for me. But anyway, I really enjoyed this poem. It's really a blessing. I'm putting it in our bulletin. May your evening bring you many new poems to share with the world.
