Walk With Me…by Carl Gooch

Walk With Me


Dear Lord hear me when I pray

Lead me along your holy way.

I’m adrift on this troubled sea

Loving Savior, walk with me.


Not for riches nor for fame,

But that these eyes may see;

And that you my loving Lord,

Would grant this to me.


On life’s journey walk with me

Be my guide for I can not see.

Lord your mercy set me free,

Blessed Jesus, walk with me.


Lord your blessings I know,

Everyday Lord you bless me.

No greater love can there be,

Loving Savior, walk with me.


On life’s journey walk with me

Be my guide for I can not see

.Lord your mercy set me free,

Blessed Jesus, walk with me.

I Heard Jesus Calling—by Carl Gooch

I Heard Jesus Calling


When I strayed from His holy way

There was trouble down in my soul

But Jesus was calling, calling out to me.

I was sinking, yes, I was lost in sin;

I thought I was at my journey’s end.

But Jesus was calling, calling out to me.


I heard Jesus calling, calling out to me.

I cried blessed Savior take my hand,

Lead me on to that promised land.

Yes, I heard Jesus calling out to me.


I traveled through life day by day

And temptation got in my way.

I heard Jesus calling, calling out to me.

I just needed for follow His light,

He’d guide me through the night.

I heard Jesus calling, calling out to me.


I heard Jesus calling, calling out to me.

I cried blessed Savior take my hand,

Lead me on to that promised land.

Yes, I heard Jesus calling out to me.


When my burden gets me down

,And there is no friend to be found,

I hear my Savior Calling, calling out to me

.He comes with comfort and peace

His love for me will never cease.

I hear my Savior Calling, calling out to me.


I heard Jesus calling, calling out to me.

I cried blessed Savior take my hand,

Lead me on to that promised land.

Yes, I heard Jesus calling out to me.

COUNSELED BY EILEEN*

His counselor, Eileen,

A professional very keen…

On finding the heart

Of a matter to start,

Problem solving to build one’s esteem!

A method very Socratic,

Analyzing what seems irratic…

Motivated actions

And why attractions,

May make the client ecstatic!

Problem solving her thing,

And advocating….

Brings to the fore

Accomplishing more,

Positive results worth stating!

Jonathan Caswell

  • Eileen may or may not be her real name…this poet rarely uses last names of real people, except for some very defined circumstances.

A ‘SPECTRUM” OF POSSIBILITIES! *

They sent a double bill,

Giving him a chill…

Of panic

Waxing manic,

The prospects made him ill !

Got on the telephone line,

Used the call-back just fine…

Half of it paid

Two weeks ago gave,

Him hope he could pay the rest on time!

Jonathan Caswell

  • Spectrum is the current corporate name of our cable company.

On Calvary

On Calvary


Come… take my hand Lord, 

Lead through this dark night.

All my fears are like shadows

Fleeing before your holy light.

 I am yours and forever will be

You paid the price on Calvary.


Yes, you paid the price on Calvary

You shed your blood to set me free.

Loving and mercy you showed to me-

When you paid the price on Calvary.


Lord Jesus, I belong to you

,On your holy word I will stand.

Unashamed your name proclaim

As I am lead by your holy hand.

I was lost but you rescued me

,And paid the price on Calvary.


Yes, you paid the price on Calvary

You shed your blood to set me free

.Loving and mercy you showed to me

When you paid the price on Calvary.

My heart Will Never Break Again

My Heart Will Never Break Again


I was a lad barely reached the age of ten 

And I remember standing over my daddy

.I knew he not be returning ever again\,

So I whispered a sad farewell to my daddy.


Well, I knew he was gone to me forever

;All the people said that it was okay to cry

.But these eyes of mine did not shed a tear

,And I would not give them a reason why.


One day there will be no crying or tears

One day there will be no heartache or pain.

And there will be no more sorrow or fear

And my heart will never break again.


I don’t cry for the dead, it does no good;

My tears are for the living and their pain.

The widow and her children left behind,

They are the ones who face the strain.


But one day there’ll be no crying or tears

One day there will be no heartache or pain

.And there will be no more sorrow or fear

And my heart will never break again.
