Then Jesus Came To Save

Poem By Garrett Westcott

Loaded down by misery
I forgot I was alive
The enemy was upon me
It's a wonder I survived

I hoped loneliness would end me
And send me to my grave
I cried to God for mercy
Then Jesus came to save

I confessed I was a sinner
That my life was dark and lost
Rebellion is as old as Adam
And death is what it cost

Salvation is what I needed
Faith has set me free
Belief in the One and Only
Who died upon the tree

Jesus is my Savior
My life is in His hands
At the end of this solemn journey
Before Him I will stand

(2011)

What Is Christmas All About?

What is Christmas all about?
Is what I hear the children shout
Is it about candy and toys?
Gifts and games for girls and boys?

Lifeless On The Cross

God's promise had been sent from on high
The world knew no better cause
Righteousness had kissed the face of truth
Now the Way was faced with mournful loss

The Rider On The White Horse

The skies were ablaze with thunder
And all ears heard the angles shout
My mind was full of wonder
As to what this was all about

Sweetness Tasted

Not a tear has dripped from the eye
To water this garden paradise
But God keeps watch that it does not run dry
The earth is watered and the sky free to fly

This Is A Poem

A poem that will make you try
To try and wash the blues away
Maybe not tomorrow
