Song -- And I, His Mother!

Love is all around, the prophecy is sound,

For I have given birth to the Son of God!

He is my Savior! He is my King!

And He is my baby;

Shepherds homage to Him bring.


Exquisitely sweet, yet bitter;

His mission on earth.

I am humbled to be chosen

To give my Lord birth!


And with Joseph by my side,

This precious task is laid

To love, and teach, and guide Him.

The promise has been made.


He's the Prince of Peace, the Anointed One.

He's God's Holy Lamb.

The Kind of Kings, the Lord of Lords,

He's the Great I Am!


Love is all around, the prophecy is sound,

For I have given birth to the Son of God!

He's the Bread of Life,

He is Living Water,

And He is my baby... and I... His mother!

Song -- Come Unto Me

God loved the little children, and

He called them to His knee.

He kissed them and He blessed them,

And held them tenderly.

"My kingdom's made of ones like these.

If you would be with Me,

You must be like them; full of faith

And love and honesty."


Come unto Me!

Love Me with your heart and you will see

Happiness and joy awaiting thee.

Come unto Me!

Love the way I love all those you see.

Walk in faith, for I come suddenly!


There was a man named Lazarus,

A friend of Jesus dies.

And though He knew He'd raise him;

Our Lord and Savior cried!

He loves us and He understands

Our trials and all our pain!

He's knocking at the door and pleads,

"Turn around and come to Me."


Come unto Me!

Love Me with your heart and you will see

Happiness and joy awaiting thee.

Come unto Me!

Love the way I love all those you see.

Walk in faith, for I come suddenly!

Song -- Eternity

Eternity! If I could only see into eternity,

Then I would recognize another part of me,

And my time of change wouldn't seem so long.

And I would be more like Thee, and Mother, virtuous and kind.


Eternity! Why does it seem like an eternity,

As I wait for the woman that I soon will be,

But sometimes I feel like such a child!

Back and forth! South, then North!

I need some direction true and mild.


Eternity! There with Mother loving me so patiently,

Humbly and with love we are a family,

And I can see a Brother, He's my Brother! Oh!


Eternity! Someday when I can see into eternity,

And recognize that wonderful part of me,

And see my time of change didn't last long.

Then , I would be more like Thee, and Mother virtuous and kind.

Song -- By the Spirit

By the Spirit I know who I am and I glow as I daily put oil in my lamp.

I can love and forgive! I can righteously live as an instrument in His hands.

I am a child of God... a Royal King! With the Spirit, His praises I'll sing!

He, He is my Father, and I love Him! And I love Him!

(c) 1992 Lurlynn L. Potter

      Thank you. I wear my heart on my sleeve. His gift to me is that it can sometimes wear off on others and spread a little bit of His light.

      As a believer myself, I was truly blessed reading these poems. Praise God for the ability He's given you to write poems so full of spiritual truth.
