Jesus Comes Near

Life’s wilderness breathes a dark, lonely place

Falling away with sin, feeling disgraced

Searching for the light, weary of darkness

Shame and guilt unmask tracks, never erased


Coming to a place, filled with prickly thorns

Plowing straight through, left bloody and battered

Searching for new hope, never forgotten

This harsh life’s future, forever shattered


Ominous clouds loom on the horizon

Lightning strikes, temple curtain torn in two

Searching for a fresh start, to be reborn

Plodding into darkness, without a clue


Deserving life’s worst, approaching the Pit

End of time arrives, stop and surrender

Searching for God’s Grace, feeling forsaken

Heavens brighten up, with newfound splendor


Stumbling steps make haste, Eternity waits

Through a bloody Cross, hope springs from a tomb

Searching and accepting, come near the Cross

Salvation through Christ, our Father’s heirloom


Jesus beckons, come forward, take a knee

Bring sin’s burdens to the Cross, forever free


From Titus 2:11-13:  “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all, training us to renounce impiety and worldly passions, and in the present age to live lives hat are self-controlled, upright,and godly, while we wait for the blessed hope and the manifestation of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
