My Jesus

He is my body and my bread,
My sustenance and smile.
My ever-present Savior;
My hope through every trial.
Sustained beneath His watchful eye
Forever here, forever nigh.

He is my soul and sweetness,
My purpose and my peace.
My ever-living Savior;
My solace and my priest.
Sustained beneath His watchful sight
Forever here, forever right.

He is my spirit and my song,
My glory and my guide.
My ever-giving Savior;
My praise and greatest pride.
Sustained beneath His watchful gaze
Forever here, forever raised.

By Tom Valles

Psalm 71:6By You I have been sustained from my birth; You are He who took me from my mother's womb; My praise is continually of You.

This is really cool... very expressive, yet with not many words.. Easy to envision who our Heavenly Father is.. Thank you so much for the reminder to me today, of just what the Lord means.. You are a blessing , as this is just what I needed to read today..
