Bill's Poems

God's Favorite Child
(inspired by Steve Mcvey: www.gracewalk.com)

God has a lot of children

And He loves them all, thats true.

But there's not a single one of them 

He loves more than you!

God's looking down from Heaven 

With a smile upon His face,

Admiring you, His masterpiece,

A product of His Grace.

He's calling all His angels

And the faithful saints of old,

come here and stand beside Me

And my lovely child behild.

They would not have even known you 

If they had seen You just before 

You heard His gentle whisper 

And His knock upon your door.

with child like faith you opened up

And bid Him to come in. 

He gave to His righteousness 

And took away YOUR sin. 

With quiet desperation

And a coldness in your soul

You brought a wounded, broken heart

And let Him make it whole. 

You were looking for forgiveness

And a way through Heaven's door.

That you found, through faith in Him.

But He gave you so much more!

Child, now it's time to understand

All the blessings you've been given.

His life in you, His goodness too, 

And His power for your living.

(Sung to the tune of Jesus Loves Me, This I Know)

 

Jesus knows me, this I love

He is God’s Grace from up above.

Jesus gave His life for me

My sins are gone, and I am free.

 

Chorus:

Yes, Jesus knows me,

Yes, Jesus knows me,

Yes, Jesus knows me

His Grace has set me free.

 

Jesus died and rose again

To free me from the power of sin.

Then He gave His Life to me

So a new creation I could be.

 

Chorus:

Yes, Jesus knows me,

Yes, Jesus knows me,

Yes, Jesus knows me

His Grace has set me free

 

Jesus promised He would stay

And live His Life through me each day.

It’s not for me to try my best,

But in His Grace to walk and rest.

 

Chorus:

 

Yes, Jesus knows me,

Yes, Jesus knows me,

Yes, Jesus knows me

His Grace has set me free.

Jesus Is My Rock

by Bill Stewart©2012

Jesus is my rock, on Him I’m gonna roll

All the worries of my heart and

Burdens of my soul

 

The storms of life keep coming

Just never slowing down

I’m going under water

I think I’m gonna drown

 

Then  my feet land on the rock

That’s sure and  true  and  strong

And as I’m  flooded with his peace

My heart burst into song

 

Seems the battle’s never ending

I just don’t know what to do,

But His Love He just keeps sending

And I know I’ll make it through.

 

There’s no other way to make it.

You can only try in vain.

Give Him your burden, He will take it,

Then His Grace will ease your pain.

 

So when waters rise and storm winds blow,

Just Look in HIS eyes; then you ‘ll surely know,

Jesus IS your rock,

to Him He’ll let you  roll

All the worries of Your Heart, and troubles of your soul.
