Always Our Friend

This poem is inspired by a favorite hymn of many, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”

Living weak in character

Laying at the Cross, past torts

Jesus, always our friend

Hearing our troubling reports


Stepping humbly to our Lord

Dumping these tribulations

Jesus, always through His love

Building our life’s foundation


Facing polarizing darkness

Bearing pain, feeling alone

Jesus waits, always trusting

Welcoming us to His own


Taking us, lifting us up

Rescuing us from sin’s shame

Jesus, always rebuilds faith

Saving through His Father’s name

From 1 Peter 1:21:  “Through Him you have come to trust in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are set on God.”
