It seems that with this one, I wanted to see how many times I could rhyme with “guide” and still have a poem that makes sense. 😄 All joking aside, here is another poem with a very different rhyming pattern. A couple of lines near the middle is based on 2nd Cor:5:17 (Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.) and a couple of lines near the end is based on Gal:2:20 (I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.)
Hope y’all have a great weekend! ♥
Be My Guide
In this wicked world, I abide
It is a bog that threatens to drown us in quicksand
Jesus, pull me out of my sinful ways, here is my hand!
Please, Lord, be my Guide
We’re surrounded by fog so thick that we cannot see
Take my hand, Lord, and out of this confusion, lead me!
Jesus, stay at my side
Noise is so loud that it’s hard to know truth from lies
Help me, Lord Jesus, hear my pleading cries!
In You, Lord, I confide
You know my heart, my soul, my very being
I know that without you, there is no seeing!
For us, You died
So that we, Your children, can live for You
I believe upon Your Son; turn me into a creature anew!
You were crucified
Like a common criminal, The Innocent One
Was punished for sins we have done
I knelt and cried
From my evil ways, He has set me free!
He, The Only Begotten Son, has saved me!
I cannot hide
The Light within shines though my spirit
I must share the Gospel! People must hear it!
In me – You reside
I am crucified with Christ, yet I live; yet, I live not
For Jesus lives in me; we live by the faith of the Son of God
I lose my pride
When we drive on the road of life alone, we hit potholes
But when Jesus is in the driver’s seat, He steers our souls
So it’s a smoother ride
