Good Morning

Jesus was in my room this morning.

I don’t know why He came.

Unless it was the prayer last night

in which I called His name.

——————————————————-

It was too early for any daylight,

so I didn’t view His face.

But His love was present in the dark

and soon filled up the place.

——————————————————-

The early morning was cold outside,

blanketed by a frost.

But I realized with Jesus at hand

nary a hope was lost.

——————————————————-

I’d spent the night in an awful gloom,

ashamed of my many sins.

I’d prayed that God would open my heart

and let His Son come in.

——————————————————-

But I had not received an answer,

at least I didn’t think so.

Till I awoke and felt Jesus’ presence,

then I began to know.

——————————————————-

To know that my prayer had been answered,

to know how much He cares.

To know that He is my Comforter,

to know my pain He shares.

——————————————————-

And then I noticed some light outside,

cast by a rising sun.

Soon the entire house began to stir,

for a new day had begun.

——————————————————-

So I cried, “My dear precious Jesus,

please do not leave me now.

For I have to start this brand new day

and I’m just not sure how.

——————————————————-

You’ve only just arrived to my room

for the early morning light.”

Then a voice said, “I’ll never leave you,

don’t you know I spent the night?”
