Poem - Jesus you are...


A poem by Helen Kinnett


Jesus, you are a rock to me,

Jesus, I put my trust in thee,

Jesus, you are my guide,

Jesus, you always walk beside,

Jesus, you are my Almighty King,

Jesus, to you my praises I sing,

Jesus, you are the Living Water,

Of the King, I am a daughter,

Jesus, you watch over me and keep,

One of your flock, I am safe as your sheep.

 

Jesus, you are my hope,

Jesus, you are how I cope,

Jesus, you are my Immanuel,

Jesus, of God with us, I will tell,

Jesus, you are my Lord,

Your resurrection in my reward,

Jesus, help me to know you are near,

Jesus, Jesus, Saviour so dear,

I know that my Redeemer lives,

To my life, joy He gives.

 

Jesus, you are one of heaven’s host,

Father, Son and Holy Ghost,

Jesus, you are with us now,

Son of David, to you we bow,

Jesus, you are heaven’s melody,

Jesus, Jesus, you set me free,

Jesus, you are the Sweetest Name,

You forgive my sin and shame,

Jesus, you are the Prince of Peace,

Jesus, Jesus, let your Kingdom increase.

 

Jesus, you are my Daily Bread,

Jesus, by your Word, I’m fed,

Jesus, you are the New Wine,

On God’s path, you are the sign,

Jesus, you are my one true desire,

Jesus, fills my heart with Holy Fire,

Jesus, gentle refuge you are,

Jesus, Jesus, heaven’s bright star,

Jesus, you are my calm,

In Gilead there is a balm.

 

Jesus, you are life anew,

Jesus, Jesus, I worship you,

Jesus, you are Lamb of God today,

For your encouragement, Jesus, I pray,

Jesus, you are the Shepherd Good,

Help me to do, all I should,

Jesus, you the Good News do bring,

You help me to soar, on the eagle’s wing,

Jesus, you are my footprints in the sand,

Jesus, Jesus, you are holding my hand.

 

Jesus, you are wise,

Point me to the skies,

Jesus, show God to me there,

Jesus, you teach me to share,

Jesus, you are forever,

Lord of Lords, ceasing never,

Jesus, you are everlasting,

Light of the World, no shadow overcasting,

Jesus, you are Majesty,

The lame shall walk, the bling shall see.

  

Jesus, you are the King of Kings,

You bless me with many good things,

Jesus, you are God’s only Begotten Son,

Chosen by Him as the Holy One,

Lion of Judah, you are strong,

In your family, I belong,

Jesus, you are the church’s Cornerstone, its start,

I will serve you, give you all of my heart,

Jesus, Wonderful Counsellor is He,

Help me, your disciple to be.

 

Jesus, you are Passiontide,

Jesus, you are love, deep and wide,

Jesus, help me to see,

Jesus, you are Trinity,

Help me in my heart to confess,

Knowing you, I am blessed,

Jesus, you are meek and mild,

Born to us as a human child,

Jesus, your compassion I want to receive,

Jesus, Jesus, in you I believe.

  

Jesus, you are my all,

Jesus, I hear and answer your call,

Jesus, you are my daily prayer,

Jesus, I know how much you care,

Jesus, you are my strong tower,

Jesus, in the garden, you are my bower,

Jesus, you are my safe harbour,

Jesus, I shelter in your arbour,

Jesus, when I follow your lead,

I will have, everything I need.

 

Jesus, you are a warm embrace,

Jesus, you are full of grace,

Jesus, you are my foundation stone,

Jesus, is with me, I am never alone,

Jesus, you are The Truth, The Way,

Jesus, knowing you, really makes my day,

Jesus, you are my Teacher,

Jesus, you are the parable Preacher,

Jesus, you are the centre,

Jesus, Jesus, be my mentor.

  

 Jesus, you are the Anointed One,

Jesus, you are God’s only Son,

Jesus, you are Last and The First,

Jesus, for your love, I thirst,

Jesus, you are Beginning and End,

Jesus, with you I don’t have to pretend,

Jesus, you are the Gospel heard,

Jesus, the Bible, shows me, you’re The Word,

Messiah, blessing, merciful one,

By faith, your promise is won.

 

Jesus, you are with me here,

Jesus, I have naught to fear,

Jesus, you are refreshment to my soul,

Jesus, knowing you more, is my only goal,

Jesus, you are patient, kind,

Jesus, you are a special find,

Jesus, you are Christ The Lord,

Jesus, by me, you are adored,

Jesus, on you I can depend,

Master, comforter, my faithful friend.

  

Jesus, you are the open, welcoming arms,

You save me from false Gods and their charms,

Jesus, you are giving,

Help me to mirror you, by how I am living,

Jesus, you are a healing touch,

Jesus, Jesus, I love you so much,

Jesus, you are the Fisher of Men,

Jesus, you will come to the earth again,

Ancient of Days,

I will follow your ways.

 

Jesus, you are the Son of Man,

Jesus, you are part of God’s plan,

Jesus, you are of Jesse’s root,

Jesus, Jesus, I am your recruit,

Jesus, you are my solid ground,

All my hope in you is found,

Jesus, you are the True Vine,

You fill me up with love divine,

Jesus, you shine,

Jesus, be mine!
