Turn to Jesus
A poem
By Harold Stoddard

'THO SICKNESS MAY BEFALL YOU AND THE JOYS OF LIFE GROW DIM,
THEN MY FRIEND JUST TURN TO JESUS FOR YOUR PAIN IS KNOWN TO HIM.
'THO THAT CHILD HAS DRIFTED FROM YOU, FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS FAR AWAY,
AND WILL NO LONGER HEAR YOU NOR LISTEN TO WHAT YOU SAY
THEN BRING YOUR HURT TO JESUS FOR HE IS THE TRUE AND ONLY WAY.

'THO POVERTY BESET YOU AND THERE ARE NO FRIENDS TO KNOCK AT YOUR DOOR,
MY FRIEND JUST TURN TO JESUS FOR HE KNOWS ABOUT THE POOR.

'THO WAR CLOUDS COME UPON US AND TAKE OUR PRECIOUS CHILDREN FAR AWAY,
SURELY WE MUST TURN TO JESUS FOR HE IS OUR HOPE AND STAY.

'THO THE ENEMY BE STRONG AND VICIOUS AND THE DANGER AWFULLY GREAT
WE MUST TURN AGAIN TO JESUS FOR HE IS THE DOOR, THE WORD, THE GATE.

'THO WE HAVE MANY WEAPONS ON WHICH POWERFUL MEN RELY,
YET WE CANNOT WIN THE BATTLE NO MATTER HOW HARD WE TRY
SO WE MUST TURN OUR HEARTS TO JESUS
FOR HE KNOWS, HE HEARS AND HE WILL REPLY.

'THO MANY SUFFERINGS, TRIALS AND TROUBLES BEAT UPON US
AND THE WORLD GROWS DARKER STILL
WE MAY TURN OUR HEARTS TO JESUS FOR HE PROMISED
TO GAIN THE VICTORY AND HE SURELY WILL.

'THO YOU HAVE MANY SORROWS, PERHAPS HAVE LOST YOUR DEAREST FRIEND,
THEN JUST TAKE THAT BROKEN HEART TO JESUS FOR A BROKEN HEART HE'LL MEND.

'THOYOU MAY NOT KNOW THIS JESUS AND KNOW
YOUR SIN WILL BRING YOU TO A BITTER END,
YOU CAN TURN TO HIM IN SIMPLE FAITH
FOR HE IS THE SINNER'S FRIEND.

HE SEEKS AND HE WILL FIND YOU IF YOU WILL ONLY TRUST HIS WAY
FOR HE HAS CLEANSED THE LEPER AND HE'LL WASH YOUR SINS AWAY,
SO SIMPLY TURN, MY FRIEND, TO JESUS -- ON HIM PUT ALL YOUR TRUST
AND HE WILL SAVE YOU FOR HE PROMISED AND HE MUST.

'THO YOUR SINS BE AS SCARLET, HE CAN MAKE YOU WHITE AS SNOW, FOR HE IS THE KING OF KINGS, THE LORD OF LORDS, THE ONLY WISE GOD, THE CREATOR, THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. THERE IS NO OTHER WHO CAN SAVE HE ALONE DIED TO SAVE AND HE LIVES TO KEEP, FOR IN JESUS WE ARE SAFE, FOR THERE IS NO OTHER SHELTER IN THE TIME OF THE STORM THAT WILL COME UPON THIS WICKED AND EVIL WORLD.

-- Harold Stoddard
