Poems by Helen Nurse

The Great Love Of Jesus

Oh the joy of knowing Jesus
Oh the joy of His great love
Oh to know my sin forgiven
And Iím saved for Heaven with him.

And He loves us oh so dearly
Weak and sinful as we are
Yet He gave His live to save us
Now my life belongs to Him.

Oh the precious love of Jesus
It is more than tongue can tell
It is past all understanding
Yet He gave to save the world.

I will praise His name forever
For its worthy of all praise
I will worship and adore Him
Sing His praise through endless days.

And I know some day Iíll see Him
Yes Iíll see Him face to face
May it be a happy meeting
If Iíve lived my life for Him.

He will never, never leave me
But will stay close by my side
He is a precious loving Saviour
In His love I will abide.



In the stillness of the evening
When all nature soon will rest
Here I lift my heart to Jesus
And in seeking I am blessed.

Oh I love you blessed Jesus
Keep me always close to thee
Fill me with your Holy Spirit
That I may a witness be.

Oh that you may use me Jesus
To tell others of thy love
That they may accept your message
And be saved for Heaven with thee.

Yes, I thank you blessed Jesus
For your love in saving me
Thou art worthy oh my Saviour
All my love and praise to give
