My heart sings a sorrowful song
My soul droops from all the wrong
I've done
While I wander down
this sacred ground
I hear Holy echoes of praise
and before me was a face
of The One who made me with His two hands
I kneel down and face to the ground
for my soul is so heavily burdened with sin
my guilt burns from within
and nothing can cleanse it...

He in His white robes and golden sash
He in His ruby stoned crown
He in His glorious love
So beautiful indeed
was the Husband who
woos the heart of every man and woman
He alone Who bore the burden and cast away all sins

God made Man
King who reigns
Lord of Lords
and King of Kings
Jesus Christ redeemer blessed
all knees bend and lips confess
hearts employ
with praises then
to bless His name
for His glory never ends

I knelt down
dirt stained on my face
a ladybug stood on the tip of my nose
like a butterfly upon a rose
but mine nose is nowhere near the comparison of those

He sighed
and my heart swooned
He breathed
and I yearned
to kiss His feet
His robes rippled
in the gentle breeze
who whispers psalm to carry praise unto Him
His hair is like golden honey
His eyes like sweet orbs of fruit
which is bursting with tempting flesh

my eyes are heavy as stones
my body rigid like deadening trees
my soul weeps like their wizened branches
whose age is at its peak
I did not dare look
I did not dare speak
I awaited
judgement fitting for my soul
Though I am in the dark
A string of gold
pierced its stronghold
and outstretched
was a shining arm
a glorious hand
beautiful skin which resembled that
of a freshly blossomed flower

Jesus Christ
with all His might
Told me everything would be all right
then held His staff on one hand knelt down to lift my drooping head
He kissed mine forehead
and He traced
the skin of my skin
upon my face
I died in pleasure
for all within
recognized my horrid sins
He didn't flinch
nor did He complain
when I refused to lift my head to meet His eyes

He sighed again
and a flower bloomed
He sighed again
and birds started a song
He knelt down
and the winds did blow
for the trees and flowers all knelt down too

Like a lullaby
He sang so sweet
He sang a song which made the earth and Heavens meet
He sang a song so sweet and gentle
my soul was at ease
my spirit twisting and writhing felt His peace

like a root trying to grasp the ground
for it cannot grow without nourishment
of the soil
I twitched my head
like a flower turns to the sun
I slowly turn to Him who won
the war for me

Jesus God almighty
You are glorious in my sight
You are glorious for Thy light pierces everything
God almighty
I love You
but my lips won't part
I have sins
and heavily burdened my heart
it cannot purge nor can it soar....

Then His nail scarred hands
held my cheeks
gently He was like the sun who coaxed a seed to rise up to see
the wonders the Lord has made
He looked at me and I blushed
for my shame was great
and yet He looked
I saw His eyes and brows golden brown
His lips red like roses and tulips in the dawn
His skin like that of the clouds
or whiter still
He smiled and a rainbow cast itself across the skies
He spoke and all gazed in awe
For the Messiah rescued me

Why me?
Why look at a sinner's eyes
and redeem
a most horrible criminal?

Thou spoketh plain as day
For God loved the world so much
that He gave His only Son
that the world might taste and see Salvation

Thou spoketh again with Heavenly eloquence;

I have thy name carved upon My hand
I fell down three times so you may stand
I have a plan for you that no man can take away
a promise for a better day
as cheesy as it sounds to you yes, this I say
I love thee as a jealous lover guards
His true beloved in His arms

Yes I love thee
as a father loves his child
as a mother guards her new born
as a lover his true love...
yes I love thee
and no man can snatch that away from thee

Thou hath sinned
this is true
but know this
if thine soul is contrite
mercy is not far away from thy sight
behold, I am here
I am giving thee grace
I am giving thee love
and saving grace
I love thee
and I forgive thee
I love thee
If thou hath sinned
repent and I shall forgive
I will forgive thee a million times million times
if thou even repeatedly commit the same sin

Then I say
Lord forgive me I have sinned
I am feeling lost
and I have wandered astray
lead me back to Thy fold
let not evil lead me away from Thee

Lord I am filthy
Lord I have sinned again
If Thou art willing
make me see
that I may have Thine eyes
to see those who hath fallen
and as Thou hath made me rise
that Thy work through me and I be Thy hands
to help the others stand  too
If Thou art willing make me walk again
that I may help the cripple exult Thy name
Lord if Thou art willing
make me clean again...

beautiful! good job! :D :hug:
may i ask how did you know to describe Jesus so clearly?
cereal-in-a-bowl Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Aw, thanks Jasmin. I think everyone sees God differently, so I guess I see Him like that. I'm pretty sure there are other poets who can do a LOT better and they have done so.
