The answer to every question

Have you ever found yourself longing for answers but somewhere along the way you lost track of the questions? This poem reminds me that the answer to every question, doubt, and longing can be summed up in one phrase . . .

Just Give Me Jesus

He is enduringly strong.
He is entirely sincere.
He is eternally steadfast.
He is immortally gracious.
He is imperially powerful.
He is impartially merciful.
He is the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizons of the globe.

Just give me Jesus.

He is God’s Son.
He is the sinner’s Savior.
He is the captive’s Ransom.
He is the Breath of Life.
He is the centerpiece of civilization.
He stands in the solitude of Himself.
He is august and He is unique.
He is unparalleled and He is unprecedented.
He is undisputed and He is undefiled.
He is unsurpassed and He is unshakable.
Just give me Jesus.

He is the lofty idea in philosophy.
He is the highest personality in psychology.
He is the supreme subject in literature.
He is the unavoidable problem in higher criticism.
He is the fundamental doctrine of theology.
He is the Cornerstone, the Capstone, and the stumbling Stone of all religion.

He is the miracle of the ages.

He is the God of the Second Chance,
The Fat Chance,
The Slim Chance,
The No Chance.

No means of measure can define His limitless love.

Just give me Jesus.

I was not able to find an author for this poem, but you can listen to Anne Graham Lotz eloquently reciting it to the background of Fernando Ortega’s piano playing here.

This week I’m linking up with Create With Joy, Your Thriving Family, Beholding Glory, and No Ordinary Blog Hop.

  1. Yes.
    Jesus on the cross, for me and for you.

    It doesn’t answer everything (yet), but it is enough.
    He IS love.
