Christian Love Poems

Christian Love Poems relate directly or indirectly to God's love being expressed through grace. Our faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, assures us of eternal rest.

God's love is not just for the few but for all who turn to Him through believing in Jesus Christ, confessing of sins, and true repentance. Love is a free will choice just as it is a free choice to turn away or deny that there is an Almighty God, the creator of Heaven and Earth.

The various Christian poetry you are about to read opens up a whole new world as seen by the poetry writers. Sit back, enjoy and contemplate the deep meaning of the words.

Someone Will Pay
Greta Zwaan,   2010

Sin will be punished by you or by Christ;
Never blame God for your acts.
The road of salvation is clear before you,
Don't be dissuaded by earth's sinful facts.

There's much to tempt you, much to distract you,
Satan would have you destroyed;
It's a dangerous path to follow his lead,
But truly, he wants you employed.

The pictures he paints are enticing and cruel,
His evil knows no human bounds,
He's subtle, destructive, demanding and false,
No evil expressed so resounds.

All over the world there's anguish expressed,
The folly? "I've made the wrong choice,
If only I'd listened when conscience spoke up,
Adhered to my self's inner voice."

Am I too late for amends to be made?
Too late to express my regret?
Can I escape these clutches I'm in?
Is there hope for a change in me yet?
Oh! Praise the Lord! Christ has paid for my sin,
The blood of the Lamb covers all.
I have confessed and now I've been cleansed,
Christ rescued me from the fall.

T'was five fish burgers he carried as he dashed to the top of the hill;
His mother had packed him a basket, his appetite to fulfill.
He was young, he was strong, he was healthy; he was eager to follow the crowd,
He had heard of this fellow called "Jesus" and how hearts were swayed, hearts were bowed.

He needed a personal experience -"Never believe all that you hear."
He figured he'd use his own judgment as he pushed through the crowd and drew near.
WOW! There were thousands of people! The most folks that he'd ever seen,
This Jesus had them all seated and slowly he crawled in between.
That many people! Yet, silence. Not a soul uttered a word!
The only one speaking was Jesus, for no other sound could be heard.
It's late; he should eat his lunch now, he should leave and be on his way;
Yet something compelled him to listen, to hear what Jesus would say.
Then he heard Him question those seated, "Did anyone here bring their lunch?"
He offered his fish burger basket, but it couldn't feed this huge bunch!
But Jesus blessed it and broke it - everyone ate and was filled -
All from his basket of burgers!He was astonished and thrilled!

He'd sat at the feet of the Master! He'd given Him all that he had,
And, oh, what a great transformation occurred in the heart of this lad!

My Pledge
Greta Zwaan, © 1995

Lord, You're the One I want to please, the one I've given my heart to.
Yet failure seems to loom so big, whate'er I put a start to.
My plans are big, my goals are high, yet I cannot achieve it.
I want to serve and love You most, but who would e'er believe it?

Intentions spring within my heart to always walk beside You,
But many times I'm miles ahead, Your voice I do not heed to.
I have my life so well mapped out - each day, each week is taken,
You have a little corner too, so Lord, don't feel forsaken.

I'll give You all the time that's left; I'll plan, I'll be real careful.
In church I'll speak my piece for You; at home, I'll be more prayerful.
Out in the world? Well, Lord, that's hard.Think of my reputation!
To be a Christian nowadays could split a good relation.

My job's at stake if I speak out, my friends perhaps would leave me.
And then what could I do for You? Oh, Lord,You must believe me!
What's that You say? My heart's not Yours? But Lord! That's my desire!
I walked the aisle some years ago; there's sparks, perhaps not fire.

Yet all You ask is for my love? A better understanding?
A knowledge of Your precious Word, a bond that's true and banding?
I see it now, yes, Lord, I do - I need to get to know You.
I need that time alone each day to learn the things You'll show me.

Lord, tell me what will bring You joy, and help me to achieve that,
Remove my doubts, remove my fears, and help me to believe that.
Although I've failed You in the past, You've always been beside me.
Lord, take my life, make it anew, forYou alone can guide me.

This day I stand inside Your house, and here before Your altar,
I pledge my love, I give my heart, please, help me not to falter.
Too long I've walked this road of sin, a path so dark and lonely.
I'm here to change directions, Lord, to love and serve You only.

Equality and Ownership
Greta Zwaan, © 2006

The dust on the ground lies equal at our feet;
The air that we breathe is equally sweet.
The early morning sun brings light to my door;
It gives the same to each - no less and no more.

You may not choose where the raindrops fall
Or when the whippoorwill sends out its mating call.
You can't control the coming days of spring,
Nor can you tell the robin when to sing.

You can't control the waters of the sea,
Nor draw upon the sands where its lines will be.
You cannot tell the length of days of man;
The thoughts in his mind or what he might plan.

You might think you have power and that you're in control,
But only God is able to discern what's in man's soul.
The might you have been given, the strength that you display,
Is yours but for a moment, then it quickly fades away.

All your dreams and fancies are but a breath of air,
All your schemes and planning can bring you to despair.
Look up and see your Maker who holds time in His hands,
Revolve your thoughts around Him, include Him in your plans.

In charge of every moment, of every breath you take,
Authority and power o'er every move you make.
You can't deny His kinship, you can't ignore His claim,
Whatever your decision, He's faithful; He'll remain.

He pleads for your devotion; eternal life is free!
You only need acceptance;you only need to see.
That Christ has made this offer, Yes! Christ is in control;
If you choose for the Master, then He'll choose for your soul.
