See that man walking down the street
Head hanging down, no shoes on his feet
Wearing ragged clothes, a frown on his face
It was Christ’ sacrifice that gives him grace

See that kid sitting, back up against the wall
Fearing a bully that he knows he has to brawl
Has no home and life’s been nothing but a fight
It is Christ’ death on the cross that gives him light

See that mom with no place to call her home
She has a hungry child whose belly starts to groan
Where her next meal comes from she doesn’t know
Jesus sustains her life it’s her faith that she shows

See that veteran who has neither arms nor legs
To make a living he’s been forced to beg
He fought two wars now he has a hard start
He reached out for Jesus who has changed his heart

Jesus came down from heaven to walk as a man
With Him He brought a message, this was Gods plan
Gods plan was for Jesus to die on the cross
It’s only Jesus that can bring hope to the lost

  1. Hey Bart! Good to see you’re still at it! I’ve been on a hiatus of sorts. We bought a house in August, and there was lots of fixin-up to do. Not that the house was in bad shape, we just had to put our personal touch on it. Then the holidays were upon us, and we had lots of company coming and going. Oh! And before that, we took Mom on a 7 day cruise for her 80th birthday! S! There’s some of my excuses for not being around for the last 5+ months!
    I like this poem; simple and full of lots of good stuff! Keep on keepin on, my man!
