  1. I Couldn't But God Could
    Poet: Jason Kirk Bartley

    I could not hang the stars in the sky,
    Nor do I hold the answers to all of the world's problems and why.
    I cannot change the things I've done within my past,
    or cast all of my sins into a sea of forgiveness no matter how vast.

    I cannot see any part of my future or how bright that it might be,
    or hang the moon into the sky so all the world could see,
    The one who could had taken my place upon Golgothas hill,
    All of our sins were placed on Him as the whole world just stood still.

    Trembling and scared one day, I asked Him into my heart.
    He promised me to leave a mark on me, and that He’d never part.
    He also promised me my sins wiped clean, and that they were eternally forgiven.
    And He gave me the keys to my cell in this life’s prison.

    His righteousness came within my soul in such a miraculous way.
    I could now testify how I’d been made whole unto this very day.

    I point everyone back to God’s own Son and where I knelt to pray,
    I point them back to Calvary and where the baby in the Manger lay,
    I point them back to this love on the cross and how He came to stay.
    I show them how to get ahold of Jesus and claim salvation today.



  2. poem - God And A Day by Poet Edward A. Church   Consider but this single day's demands, Its dower of work, its wage of smiles and tears! So rich with opportunity it stands: One day with God is as a thousand years.

  3. He Already Knew
    Poet: Jason Kirk Bartley

    He already knew who'd betray Him and when,
    and that we'd drown so deep in sin.
    He already knew our plight when taking the cross,
    that many would accept His love, but some would be lost.
    He already knew how we'd fare,
    yet He couldn't stand the thought of Heaven without us there.
    He already knew who would and wouldn't seek,
    In Jesus's name some would not dare to speak.
    But He knew many hearts would be true,
    so our Savior went to rescue you.
    He died and rose again to save each man from the depths of His sin.
    He already knew who would and wouldn't accept His gift of love,
    yet He came down to earth and left Heaven's glory above.
    He already knew He'd reclaim His throne there,
    and that you and I could be joint heirs.
    For each one a decision can be made today,
    to take our heart and at His feet to lay.



  4. Believing and trusting in Jesus, living as per Jesus' words in the gospel is a sure way to reach Heaven.

  5. Trust In Jesus
    Poet: J. J. Thorne

    Christians wait and trust in God,
    While in this vile world you plod.

    In your troubles and despair,
    Blessed Jesus is even there.

    When we are loaded down with care,
    It seems that all are in despair.

    We then are further off from harm,
    Resting safe in Jesus' arm.

    When we rejoice in nature's delight,
    Satan is near, mark his flight.

    When we are on the mountain peak,
    In nature we are always week.

    But when we drop clown in the vails,
    Jesus is near, he never fails.

    When the clouds are looking dark.
    And you have lost your trusting spark.

    Look to Jesus for your rest,
    In whom you were always blessed.

    Amid the darkest, dreary night,
    Far up above there is light.

    Jesus with his smiling face,
    Discloses home and heavenly place.

    In Jesus up above so far,
    You are typical to a star.

    The star shoots and faids away.
    Typical to your dying day.

    A Christian's life is never lost.
    Neither a star of the heavenly host.

    You reach heaven by angelic grace,
    The star proceeds to its former place.

  7. Love Of God
    Poet: Horatius Bonar

    O love of God, how strong and true!
    Eternal, and yet ever new;
    Uncomprehended and unbought,
    Beyond all knowledge and all thought!

    O heavenly love, how precious still!
    In days of weariness and ill,
    In nights of pain and helplessness,
    To heal, to comfort, and to bless!

    O wide-embracing, wondrous Love,
    We read Thee in the sky above;
    We read Thee in the earth below,
    In seas that swell and streams that flow.

    We read Thee best in Him who came
    To bear for us the cross of shame,
    Sent by the Father from on high,
    Our life to live, our death to die.

    O Love of God, our shield and stay
    Through all the perils of our way;
    Eternal love, in thee we rest,
    Forever safe, forever blest.



  8. My Path
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    My path to graduation was hard and long,
    But with faith in Jesus I stayed strong.
    Though storms did come, I had the Lord,
    With His help I overcame and soared.

    The Lord has guided me on every mile,
    As I traveled through tears and smiles.
    From hearts of joy to waters of pain,
    I encountered each one in God’s name.

    My school journey was tough and tedious,
    But I thank the Lord for His graciousness.
    So as I walk across this stage today,
    It's Jesus who helped me all the way.



  9. The Lord has guided me on every mile, As I traveled through tears and smiles.


  10. Change The Pattern
    Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2017


    God did not look down from heaven to see me as one who’s a jewel;
    He saw far beyond what I’m able, I desperately needed renewal.
    My mind was, “I am persuaded not many are serving as well;
    I feel that I set an example, for in many points I do excel.”

    I give and I tithe as required – my funds, my talents and time;
    I think that folks are inspired; really, it’s good, quite sublime.
    So why am I still without comfort? Why do I feel incomplete?
    There’s a spot in my heart that feels empty; my efforts still end in defeat.

    I ponder and find the conclusion – the story is not about me;
    I’m trying to win God’s approval while God’s plan is setting me free.
    My eyes should be focused on Jesus, not what I can achieve;
    But on His great plan of salvation, and only on that I should believe.

    The pattern of works will soon follow, then willingness follows in kind;
    The joy of being His servant will leave self exulting behind.
    God will receive all the glory, the rightful owner of praise,
    I’ll feel blessed and rewarded; I’ve changed my thoughts to His ways.

  12. The Link In The Chain
    Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2018

    I’m not the one to make judgements; I’m not the one to set goals,
    I’m just a tool for the Master, part of His team to save souls.
    I’m not the one with the answers to all the questions you ask,
    I’m not the one full of knowledge; I’m hardly up to the task.

    I too am one who is searching, why has the world gone astray?
    I have found peace in my Saviour but others have not found their way.
    So, God, if You’re willing to use me, a link in the chain of events,
    Give me instructions to follow, words that to lost souls make sense.

    Help me to keep it as simple as Jesus revealed to the crowd;
    Not oratorical flourish, not being boisterous or loud.
    Simply the plan of salvation, let it appeal to mankind,
    Its wonderful peace You have offered,
    Peace to the soul and the mind.



  13. Words that are so true about God knowing what is best.

  14. God Knows Best
    Poet: Caleb Davis Bradlee


    My God knows best! through all my days
    This is my comfort and my rest,
    My trust, my peace, my solemn praise,
    That God knows all, and God knows best.

    My God knows best! That is my chart;
    This thought to me is always blest;
    It hallows and it soothes my heart,
    For all is well, and God knows best.

    My God knows best! then tears may fall;
    In his great heart I'll find my nest;
    For he, my God, is over all,
    And he is love, and he knows best.

  16. The World's Bible
    Poet: Annie Johnston Flint


    Christ has no hands but our hands
    To do his work today;
    He has no feet but our feet
    To lead men in His way;
    He has no tongue but our tongues
    To tell men how he died;
    He has no help but our help
    To bring them to his side.

    We are the only Bible
    The careless world will read;
    We are the sinner’s gospel,
    We are the scoffer’s creed;
    We are the Lord’s last message
    Given in deed and word—
    What if the line is crooked?
    What if the type is blurred?

    What if our hands are busy
    With other work than his?
    What if our feet are walking
    Where sin’s allurement is?
    What if our tongues are speaking
    Of things his lips would spurn?
    How can we hope to help him
    Unless from him we learn?



  17. This poem reminds us that we just have to open our eyes to see God around us each and every day.

  18. God's Power
    Poet: Maria J Dodge


    In every waving blade of grass,
    In every little flower.
    That daily in my walks I pass,
    I see God's wondrous power.
    And every tiny drop of rain
    Which falls in gentle shower,
    And then in mist ascends again.
    Tells of His wondrous power.
    The little birds that gaily trill
    Their songs in morning hour,
    And all the air with music fill.
    Sing of His wondrous power.



  19. An inspiring Christian poem reminds us that life is a simple prayer.  And peace begins with God. The verses of this poetry will give you encouragement and hope of peace with the Lord.

  20. Life Becomes a Simple Prayer
    Poet: John F Zurn, 2019


    Life has mostly simple moments
    Like the rising sun each day.
    The times of truly great excitement
    Seem like clouds that drift away.
    Plans and memories are tainted
    With the hopes and fears of thought.
    When the many dreams have faded,
    The only peace begins with God.

    Then in the moments by the river,
    Or walking through a crowded mall,
    Simple thoughts of God can linger,
    And nothing else exists but God.
    In this moment thoughts have ended,
    And the spirit fills my heart.

    Then the peace of being present
    Overwhelms my inner talk.
    But just for a short pause only
    Does the fleeting moment last.
    My eager mind returns and slowly
    Thinking fuels by selfishness.
    Yet in these quiet simple moments,
    My heart perceives that God is near,
    Without the rush to trust emotions,
    My Iife becomes a simple prayer.

  23. A Christian poem that talks about the words "God bless you". We all want the Lord's blessings and our prayers often express our wishes for His blessing.

  24. God Bless You
    Poet: Julia A. Baker


    I cannot find a truer word
    Nor fonder to caress you;
    Nor song of poem I have heard
    Is sweeter than "God bless you!"

    God bless you! so I breathe a charm
    Lest Grief's dark night oppress you.
    Then how can Sorrow bring you harm
    If 'tis God's way to bless you.

    And so, not "All thy days be fair,
    And shadows touch thee never,"
    But this alone — God bless you, dear!
    So thou art safe forever.



  25. Can It Ever Be?
    Poet: Mary C. Ryan


    O God! how can it ever be,
    That I Thy glorious face can see,
    Be cleansed from sin by Thy Son's blood,
    Which for man's sins so freely flowed?
    That when Thou comest with Thy band
    Of mighty angels fair and grand.
    To make Thy jewels up for Thee,
    That Thou wilt then remember me?

    But, ah! how can I ever be
    A jewel bright and glow for Thee,
    And live with Thee in that fair land.
    And with Thy hosts of angels stand?
    For now I am so vile and weak.
    But trembling, lone. Thy ways I seek.
    Thy blood to cleanse. Thy love to guide,
    And lead me to my Saviour's side.



  26. How many books have we read searching for the truth? This short poem reminds us the Bible has all the answers we need - we just need to read and study it.

  27. The Bible
    Poet: John Greenleaf Whittier


    We search the world for truth, we cull
    The good, the pure, the beautiful,
    From graven stone and written scroll,
    And all old flower-fields of the soul;
    And, weary seekers of the best,
    We come back laden from our quest,
    To find that all the sages said
    Is in the Book our mothers read.

  29. The Life And Light
    Poet:Thomas Moore


    Thou art, O God, the life and light
    Of all this wondrous world we see;
    Its glow by day, its smile by night,
    Are but reflections caught from Thee.

    Where'er we turn, Thy Glories shine,
    And all things fair and bright are Thine.
    When Day, with farewell beam, delays
    Among the op'ning clouds of Even,

    And we can almost think we gaze
    Through golden vistas into Heaven —
    Those hues that make the sun's decline
    So soft, so radiant, Lord! are Thine.

    When Night, with wings of starry gloom,
    O'ershadows all the earth and skies,
    Like some dark, beauteous bird, whose plume
    Is sparkling with unnumbered eyes —
    That sacred gloom, those fires divine,
    So grand, so countless, Lord! are Thine.



  30. Glorious Days Ahead
    Poet: Byron Pulsifer


    There are many days to ponder
    What should I have done but wander.
    I did not stop to aid, to comfort
    My own I felt was cowardly discomfort.

    For what was the beast so near
    It was so sure in my selfish fear.
    Why was I so scared
    Was I not ready and prepared?

    The host of others who ran towards
    Was my defense to shrink backwards.
    I hope that I should never see
    More times to run from so easy.

    For in the last of days
    There will be no moving sideways.
    For we all must face
    A certain death without disgrace.

    This is not a time to fear
    It is really a time to cheer.
    For we have been given
    A Savior who has risen.



  31. 'Tis Evening Tide
    Poet:Mary C. Plummer


    'Tis evening tide, and chirping birds
    To their snug little nests are flying;
    'Tis evening tide, and the Master calls
    To sinful souls still dying.

    'Tis evening tide, and wearied workers
    Homeward tread so wearily;
    Hark! I hear one softly singing:
    Lord, in Thy mercy, shelter me.

    How many times have we said, "Help me Lord"? This poem reminds us to reach out to the Lord and to trust Him.

  33. Help Me Lord
    Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2011


    T’was not the night, the long, long night; I knew that we must part,
    But oh, the pain! The deep, deep pain that stirred within my heart.
    It’s been so long since this began, so many tears I’ve shed,
    So often I have bared my soul, “Let it be me instead!”

    To watch him suffer, see his pain for which there was no cure,
    I prayed for guidance as I asked, “How long must he endure?”
    “God, You’re the healer of mankind, the keeper of his soul,
    Could You not touch him with Your power? Restore him? Make him whole?”

    Dear God, I’m pleading, give me peace, help me to understand,
    Your loving kindness will come through, that our whole life is planned.
    I cannot see the path ahead, I wander in a daze,
    I reach my hand out for Your love, I want to give You praise.

    Oh, precious Lord, give me the strength to trust, to let You guide,
    What e’re the outcome of Your plan, walk closely by my side.



  34. The Way To Be Blest  Lord Byron 'Tis being and doing and having that make All the pleasures and pains of which mankind  partake; To be what God pleases, to do a man's best. And to have a good heart, is the way to be blest.

  37. Let Me See
    Poet Unknown

    God grant to me that I may see
    The beauty of a crooked tree,
    The blossom of a humble weed,
    The glory of a homely seed,
    The pathos of a homeless pup,
    The way to lift a brother up.
    O, grant me the highest art —
    The patience of an understanding heart.



  38. Where is God? This poem reminds us to look around and we will see Him everywhere, we just need to open our eyes

  39. God Seen In His Works
      Poet: James Cowden Wallace

    There's not a tint that paints the rose,
    Or decks the lily fair,
    Or streaks the humblest flower that blows,
    But God has placed it there.

    At early dawn, there's not a gale
    Across the landscape driven,
    And not a breeze that sweeps the vale,
    That is not sent by Heaven.

    There's not, of grass, a single blade,
    Or leaf of loveliest green,
    Where heavenly skill is not displayed,
    And heavenly wisdom seen.

    There's not a tempest, dark and dread,
    Or storm that rends the air,
    Or blast that sweeps the ocean's bed,
    But God's own voice is there.

    Around,--beneath,--below,--above,--
    Wherever space extends,
    There God displays His boundless love,
    And power with mercy blends.

  41. The Peace Of Full Surrender
    Poet: Frederic R. Marvin

    O the peace of full surrender
    All my joy to do His will!
    Mine to trust His faithful promise;
    His the promise to fulfill.

    O the glory and the rapture,
    Thus to dwell with Christ the Lord;
    New delight and wisdom gaining
    From the study of His word.

    Pleasure's songs no more entice me,
    Nor the bugle notes of Fame;
    Sweeter far the holy music
    Of my dear Redeemer's name.

    O the glory and the rapture -
    Earthly burdens pass away!
    Stormy winter turns to summer;
    Lonely darkness into day.

  45. Born Again
    Poet: David V. Bush

    I had no joy in flowers,
    In dewdrop or in rain;
    No thought for shady bowers;
    Til I was born again.

    But now I love the rose,
    The blooms of hill and plain.
    And all that nature shows,
    Since I am born again.

    For idle joys I yearned,
    And solemn thoughts gave pain;
    Until the truth I learned.
    And thus was born again.

    My life was filled with pride.
    And all my thoughts were vain;
    I cared for none beside;
    'Til I was born again.

    I doubted God's great love,
    And mocked His righteous reign;
    But now I look above.
    Since I am born again.

    So every soul is taught
    To seek the highest gain;
    And wiser grows our thought,
    When we are born again.



  46. Yea, Lord
    Poet: Julia C. R. Dorr

    Yea, Lord! — Yet some must serve,
    Not all with tranquil heart,
    Even at Thy dear feet,
    Wrapped in devotion sweet,
    May sit apart.

    Yea, Lord! — Yet some must bear
    The burden of the day,
    Its labor and its heat,
    While others at Thy feet
    May muse and pray.

    Yea, Lord! — Yet some must do
    Life's daily task-work; some
    Who fain would sing, must toil,
    Amid earth's dust and moil,
    While lips are dumb.

    Yea, Lord! — Yet even Thou
    Hast need of earthly care.
    I bring the bread and wine
    To Thee, O Guest Divine!
    Be this my prayer!



  47. A Haven For Sinners
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    In the heart of the town, the church stands tall,
    A haven for sinners, it welcomes all.

    It offers forgiveness in a peaceful embrace.

  49. Lord, At Peace With Thee
    Poet: Juliet Marsh

    Lord! if to-morrow's rising sun
    Proclaim a battle day for me,
    I only ask that setting sun
    May find me still at peace with Thee:
    Give me the field at eventide,
    'Mid song of victory.

    Lord! if the shadows, lurking deep,
    Some unknown harm from me would hide,
    Take Thou my hand, lest in the dark
    The space should grow so wide
    That never bridging of my prayers
    Could reach the other side.

    Lord! if these treasures which I have
    Would keep me still in greater need,
    Loosen the clinging of my hold
    Lest they my growth impede;
    Take, then, my empty hands in Thine,
    And they are full indeed.

  51. Psalm 23 (KJV)

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

    He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
