Easter Poems- Atonement of Jesus Christ

Reverently and Meekly Now

 

Joseph L. Townsend

 

Jesus-gethsemane-Greatest-of-All-Del-Parson-211887Reverently and meekly now, let thy head most humbly bow.

Think of me, thou ransomed one; think what I for thee have done.

With my blood that dripped like rain, sweat in agony of pain,

With my body on the tree I have ransomed even thee.

 

In this bread now blest for thee, emblem of my body see;

In this water or this wine, emblem of my blood divine.

Oh, remember what was done that the sinner might be won.

On the cross of Calvary I have suffered death for thee.

 

jesusforgivemedBid thine heart all strife to cease; with thy brethren be at peace.

Oh, forgive as thou wouldst be e’en forgiven now by me.

In the solemn faith of prayer cast upon me all thy care,

And my Spirit’s grace shall be like a fountain unto thee.

 

At the throne I intercede; for thee ever do I plead.

christs-outstreched-hand-lindsleyI have loved thee as thy friend, with a love that cannot end.

Be obedient, I implore, prayerful watchful, evermore,

And be constant unto me, That thy Savior I may be.
