THE GREATEST MAN I’VE EVER KNOWN…October 22, 2015


   (This is Jesus speaking!) …Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  Revelation 3:20

******************************

The greatest man, I hadn’t met

Lived in Heaven … afar;

Way beyond the sun and moon…

Somewhere, past the stars.

Everyday, He said, “Hello!”,

‘Ere before I knew His name.

I heard His voice in the waving grass…

In the thunder, and the rain.

He sat high upon His throne,

While aimless, I groped in doom;

And I never knew He thought of me,

While I was yet inside the womb.

The greatest man I hadn’t met,

Wanted His peace to impart.

He waited, so patient an entrance to gain,

While He stood, and knocked at my heart!

I opened the door, and looked in His eyes,

And felt the love…spilling out!

With His hand out-stretched,

He brushed the tears from my face,

And He banished all of my doubt!

*************

The greatest man I’ve come to know,

Left it all…so that I could have;

And I gladly took, ALL He had to give…

This King became lowly, and died on the cross…

Just so that I could live!

The greatest man I’ve ever known,

Turned my sorrows into light…

Sad memories I had, all faded away,

And things that were wrong, were now right!

The greatest words I still haven’t heard,

But someday, I know that I shall…

Will be, “Well done!  Enter into your rest, forever with me to dwell!”

**************

If He’s the man who you haven’t met,

He quietly stands, and knocks, just outside…

Throw open the door, and invite Him in,

For He wants with you to abide!
