But None Said ,"For Jesus"

Updated on April 20, 2012

None Said,"For Jesus "

When I told them that ,I must write

One said ,'There's money in it it's true."

Another one said,"Think of the fame."

They said,"Great power may .come to you ."

But none said,"Write for Jesus."

When I heard a sweet voice rise in song,

Some spoke of the pleasure she'd bring.

She'd have the world at her fingertips,

The world would rejoice with her and sing.

But none said ,"Sing for Jesus".

When the young start on life 's .journey

often they hear their elders point of view.

"Take what you can and live for today,

Look out for self that's my advice to you.

But few said ,"live for Jesus."

No wonder the young ones don't know Jesus..

Most of His story has never been shared.

So many of the young lost on life's highway.

Some didn't know but most never really cared

Few even spoke of Jesus.

They say only a fool would believe in Jesus,

And how He lived and suffered and died..

Only a fool believes for a world of lost sinners,

He accepted the Cross and He was crucified .

But such a fool am I !!


It is so hard to see so many of the

young people heading the wrong way

and it seems like there is very little we

can do about it ,the courts of this land

have taken God out of almost everything

now .When I was young we prayed the

first thing in the morning . If the child

did something wrong in school they

were punished as they should have

been, it seems like the children rule

the school ,.The courts took God out

of the schools now, no God there and

no punishment ,what a lethal

combination! Surely Jesus will come soon.
