The Worth of A Soul – Poem

The Worth of a Soul

I saw the Man they spoke about;

I saw Him almost pass me by.

As I touched His robe ever slightly

the feelings made me cry.

He turned His attention unto me,

unworthy of His time.

He blessed my life with words of love

I felt His joy with me –sublime.

 

*Give Him our life.

Give Him our heart.

A precious soul,

yours and mine.

We walk with Him divine.

 

They told me I would never walk,

it was so much to demand.

But the Man who was amongst them

never doubted that I could stand.

His power overcame me,

I felt the pain ebb away.

Through a blessing and miracle,

I followed Him that very day.

*

I deserved to be punished

for the things I had done.

Unfaithful and full of sin,

each stone I had won.

The Man that stood between us

asked them all to see,

the woman I could become

and who they all should be.

*

I was with those shunned;

lepers that were less.

He came upon us to heal,

blessed thru gentleness.

I returned to give Him thanks

alone I showed my soul,

blessed further He loved me.

My faith had made me whole.

*

This Man whom others followed,

I heard of Him but could not see.

He beckoned I should come to Him.

So, there on bended knee,

He took my face in loving hands,

giving me the gift of sight.

I looked into His eyes that day

and knew all things were right.

*

This Man blessed those in need,

He didn’t choose the rich or poor.

Faithful souls that believed in Him;

nothing less nothing more.

All of us with individual worth

He loves each one dear.

This Man whom we call the Savior;

in our hearts we need Him near.

*
