You Came

Jesus Christ Came
"For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me."(John 17:8, NIV)

Lost and alone.
No home of my own.
But You came.

Sinking, in a sea of sin,
No one there, to pull me in.
But You came.

Trouble circled all around me.
How, could I ever get free?
Until You came?

You came Lord, for me.
On the wings of a dove.
Setting me free,
By the power of God’s love.

What can I do?
In this world without you?
Lord, You came!

Where could I go?
What would I know?
Til You came!

I cannot hide,
This truth inside.
That You came!

You came Lord, for me.
On the wings of a dove.
Setting me free,
By the power of God’s love.

You came, dear friend, for a time in my life when I desperately needed friends. You're still here, even when I have not been - so self-absorbed in my life & not taking the time to spend on here (or to read e-mails or anything) just to offer support for others who may need it. Just know, though, that I pray for you & LOVE what you've written here. I hope life is treating you well. Hugs ~ Merana
