POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER©
You came to a world filled with darkness and sin,
You loved us devoutly without and within,
His love conquered all through a child meek and small,
Dear, God, Your Son came and He died for us all.
You took away sadness and filled us with peace,
You give us a hope that defies life’s surcease.
You gave Your life for us so we could be free.
Sweet Jesus, Your blood you did shed on the tree.
Your body lay lifeless, on that dreadful day,
To conquer the devil – our ransom to pay,
So now we look forward to that special time,
When we will live with You in heaven sublime,
Come quickly Lord, Jesus, and carry us home,
Remove all the darkness, bring light where we roam,
Be with us forever and love us each day,
Sweet Jesus, I love you, what more can I say?
