"Sometimes I Wish..."

 A-Poem-a-Day Until Resurrection Day

A Prayer of Thanksgiving to my Savior


How can I tell

how can I show

how grateful I am

that You are my Savior?


Sometimes I wish

it were possible to

leave the roast in the oven

the suds in the sink


and follow my heart’s cry

to the land of the Bible

to climb Calvary’s hill

in beautiful Zion


Oh! If it were possible—


I’d fall to my knees

at the foot of the Cross

and wrap my arms tightly

‘round its stained wooden base


and press a trembling cheek

against the old splintered grain

and thank You for Love

so wide and so deep

beyond what I can fathom


then I’d kiss it and weep

kiss it and weep


and whisper, I love You

from the depths of my being

for I’m eternally grateful

Jesus, My Lord
