Christian Poems

~ Rescued! ~

by Deborah Ann Belka

 

Jesus came with a tender heart,

and extended a loving hand

from the miry clay, He lifted me

and He helped me up to stand.

 

I was soiled and I was stained,

with the grime of my sin

and He knew that I needed

to be cleansed from within.

 

He saw that I was lost,

how my life lacked His direction

and He knew in the darkness

I couldn't see my imperfection.

 

So, He shined His light on me,

and it broke through the crust

that my heart was embedded with

until in Him I learned to trust.

 

He was the voice of my hope,

His promises I began to hear

He rescued me from the pit

and made my pathway clear.

 

Jesus came with a tender heart,

and He helped me up to stand

from the miry clay, He lifted me

now He holds me in His hand.
