MY SAVIOR AND LORD
Among all that mean to me verily
JESUS CHRIST, my SAVIOR LORD is indeed the most absolutely
Since without HIM, I am nothing definitely
...HE alone completes me with His BEING wondrously:
Joy-Source midst salvation’s delight*
Eternal life’s Lamp, always bright
Strength for great faith’s heavenly height
Upholder during divine fight
Soul’s fortress-Guard … all day and night.
Carrier of sins’ grievous blight
Hope-Giver along prayer-plight
Resurrection against death’s might
Imparter of pure wisdom’s light
Sanctifier with pardon-white
Teacher-Mentor of truth and right.
Sustainer of spiritual sight
Assurance-Granter against fright
Vanquishes Devil’s fatal bite
Instructs toward service aright
Omnipotent; acts great to cite
Redeemer: Scriptures did indite.
Leader, exemplary upright
Omniscient, showing guilt’s termite
Restorer; His heart does invite
Driver toward holiness’ flight!
The more that I draw nigh to Him sweetly
I'm sufficed and satisfied triumphantly
With gratefulness' praise, I worship Him gloriously
Serving Him while ministering to others earnestly.
*John 14:6 Jesus saith…, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
