HOW SWEET THY NAME…by Carl Gooch

How Sweet Thy Name
I try to hide the scars that life can deal
I even smile to cover up how I really feel.
Then I think of how my Savior died for me,
And I see I’m blessed for He set me free.
Jesus suffered and died for me
Upon the bloodstain cross at Calvary.
All I ever need, more than I deserved;
By His forgiveness my soul preserved.
Jesus, Jesus how sweet thy name
In your name alone salvation I claim.
I often accept whatever comes my way
I forget it is you that controls every day.
You have called me to stand and proclaim,
And speak the truth that is your Holy name.
Jesus suffered and died for me
Upon the bloodstain cross at Calvary.
All I ever need, more than I deserved;
By His forgiveness my soul preserved.
Jesus, Jesus how sweet thy name
In your name alone salvation I claim.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
