If you know someone is a Christian or you are a Christian yourself, it is important to keep the faith in what we watch, hear, and read. Sending Christian poems is one way of doing that. We have poems about blessings, heaven, and even losing faith. Read through
our collection to find a poem that suits your needs best of all.
Prayer is a way
To say thank you for this day.
A way to talk with God
The first time may feel a bit odd
But God always hears
And never doubt that He is near.
Although He already knows
Prayer is a way to show
Our trust we put in Him
Even when our world seems dim.
Heaven I can only dream
Of a place where there is no more tears
Where joy and happiness will be
Where there will be no fears.
A place where peace is found
Oh, what a glorious place
Where Jesus will walk the grounds.
Who can we trust no matter what?
Who will never leave us, never depart?
Trust in God above,
He is with you full of love.
Never will he leave you
He is with you through and through.
Trust Him in the good times and in the bad
He wants you to be happy not to be sad.
I love thy will, O God!
Thy blessed, perfect will,
In which this once rebellious heart
Lies satisfied and still.
I love thy will, O God!
It is my joy, my rest;
It glorifies my common task,
It makes each trial blest.
I love thy will, O God!
The sunshine or the rain;
Some days are bright with praise, and some
Sweet with accepted pain.
I love thy will, O God!
O hear my earnest plea,
That as thy will is done in heaven
It may be done in me!
God Is Life and Light
Poet: Thomas Moore
Thou art, O God, the life and light
Of all this wondrous world we see;
Its glow by day, its smile by night,
Are but reflections caught from Thee.
Where'er we turn, Thy Glories shine,
And all things fair and bright are Thine.
When Day, with farewell beam, delays
Among the op'ning clouds of Even,
And we can almost think we gaze
Through golden vistas into Heaven
Those hues that make the sun's decline
So soft, so radiant, Lord ! are Thine.
When Night, with wings of starry gloom,
O'ershadows all the earth and skies,
Like some dark, beauteous bird, whose plume
Is sparkling with unnumbered eyes
That sacred gloom, those fires divine,
So grand, so countless, Lord! are Thine.
Has Christianity Failed?
Poet: David V. Bush
You say Christianity has failed!
But friend, it has never been tried.
We have talked, and yea we have prayed,
But many's the time we have lied.
We have said we love as God loves
Our friends as well as our foes;
Like sinners in the time of Christ
He could scathe us too with his "woes".
We have claimed to be Christian and kind,
But in part, have we lived the truth;
Yes, only in part, O ye men,
Yea, rather like heathens, forsooth.
We say we are Christian, and then
We live without Christ; He is veiled;
So we fail in our acts and our deeds,
Then say 'tis Christ who has failed.
Why say Christianity has failed,
When it has never been tried?
Why call the Master a failure
When we've put His teachings aside?
When we live like unto Christ
Our religion is Christ and not creeds,
We shall see no failure like war
To blot the record of deeds.
'Tis the lack of Christ which has failed,
Not Christ of Calvary's cross;
'Tis the lack of Christian instruction
That records today our great loss.
'Tis not the Christ who has failed,
Nay, brother, not Christ and His way,
'Tis the spirit of mortals instead
Which has held mankind in its sway.
When Christ is lived thru and thru,
No war can our record disgrace,
For Christ is the one Prince of Peace,
He then will have the first place.
So let us not blame this loved One,
The Christ, who loves every land;
But rather, O brother, blame someone
Who mistaught this Lover of Man.
Divine And Human
Poet: Lucy Larcom
Jesus, Saviour, Friend most dear!
Dwell thou with us daily here!
By Thine own life teach us this
How divine the human is!
One with God, as heart with heart,
Saviour, lift us where Thou art!
Join us to His life, through Thine,
Human still, though all divine!
O Love, O Friend, Thy name is God!
Lord of the unseen and the known!
Thy thoughts the universe have trod,
With worlds like sands of silver strewn.
Lead us through these bewildering ways
Of pain and beauty thou hast trod!
Thou art our creed, our prayer, our praise,
O Christ, Thou human heart of God!
Rules For Daily Life
Begin the day with God:
Kneel down to him in prayer;
Lift up thy heart to his abode
And seek his love to share.
Open the Book of God,
And read a portion there;
That it may hallow all thy thoughts
And sweeten all thy care.
Go through the day with God,
Whate'er thy work may be;
Where'er thou art--at home, abroad,
He still is near to thee.
Converse in mind with God;
Thy spirit heavenward raise;
Acknowledge every good bestowed,
And offer grateful praise.
Conclude the day with God:
Thy sins to him confess;
Trust in the Lord's atoning blood,
And plead his righteousness.
Lie down at night with God,
Who gives his servants sleep;
And when thou tread'st the vale of death
He will thee guard and keep.
Finding All In Jesus
Poet: George Matheson
O Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul on thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depth its flow
May richer, fuller be.
O Light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine's blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.
O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.
O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life's glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.
Divine Peace And Joy
Poet: J. L. Spaulding
O Highest and best source of all,
From out the midst of infinite mystery of suffering,
We look to Thee!
On Thee our faith and hope and love,
On Thee our need and despair, still call.
We cannot grasp Thy being or comprehend Thy ways.
We can but know Thy truth,
Thy goodness, and Thy beauty. It is enough,
Thou art with us; in Thee we live.
What Thou doest is eternally right;
On Thee we throw the burden of our lives.
Thou art, Thou hast ever been, Thou shalt be forever;
Thou holdest us ever in sight whether we
Live or whether we die.
We weary of everything, of labor, of rest,
Of pleasure, of success, of the company of friends,
And of our own, but not of the divine presence
Uttering itself in hope and love, in peace and joy.
Strength VS. Fainting
Poet: Gloria G. Hunnex
O pilgrim bound for heaven's goal,
And toiling day by day
To lead some other precious soul
Into the narrow way,
How stands thy courage, faith, and hope
When in adversity?
How wears thy robe of righteousness
Of spotless purity?
And when the battle waxes hot,
And foes oppress thee hard,
Art thou inclined to falter then
And in the race retard?
If this should be thy lot, dear soul,
This message then is thine;
And as we read the blessed Book
We'll see some truth divine.
Although thy trembling heart seems faint,
Thy strength seems very small,
Yet thou the goodness of the Lord
Shalt see when thou shalt call;
For he who calmly waits on God
In humble secret prayer,
Shall surely have his strength renewed
While he is lingering there.
God giveth power to the faint;
To them that have no might
Increaseth he their strength when they
Are bent to do the right.
Let courage, then, embrace thy heart;
Trust that unfailing Word
With its inspiring promises -
The sweetest ever heard.
Acquaint thee now thyself with God;
Faint not at his reproof,
But pray, and let his own dear hand
Arrange thy warp and woof,
So that thy garments shall be made
Of linen that's the best -
The kind that smells not of the flame
Of any fiery test.
Yes, manfully unsheathe thy sword
And exercise the power
That thou hast gained while waiting in
Devotion's quiet hour;
And when the battle thou hast fought
By order of thy King,
Thou then shalt bask in victory
And songs of triumph sing.-
And how much greater is the joy
And consolation then
To know thou valiantly didst fight-
Shrank not, like fainting men!
Then question not thy strength again,
Nor idly spend thy days;
Be strong - acknowledge thy God,
In all thy works and ways.
Poet: David V. Bush
I know why once the desert wind
Beat o'er my pathway so;
And why no safety I could find
As on I stumbled slow;
Too much I left to my proud will,
Too oft I said *'l must;"
I would not list to "Peace, be still,"
Nor would I wait and trust.
But since I learned God's law supreme.
And trusted to His power,
The desert is a distant dream.
And roses are in flower;
The wind no more my way distracts.
But fans me soft and warm.
For trust gives strength to all our acts,
And wipes out every storm.
The Way to God
Poet: Frederick W. Norwood
Did you say you cannot think of God
because your mind has no satisfying concept?
You have no image of Life,
But you have it, and you know it.
The life more abundant and richer in quality that is God.
When its wealth flowers in love, you are in God, and God is in you.
Life Eternal is God.
God is Life Eternal.
It, or he, is flowing through you now.
Let it flow more freely, more purely,
and the river is entering the Sea.
"This life" manifestly takes on the qualities of Life Eternal.
Deeds Of Mercy And Love
Poet: Katherine Lee Bates
May deeds of mercy and of love
Spring 'neath thy hand like flowers,
To gem life's dusty, arid ways
And glad thy latest hours.
Oh, go thou forth and do thy deed
In forest and in town,
Nor sigh for ease, while pain and need
Are plucking at thy gown.
And thus, when bitter turneth sweet
And every heart is blest,
Perchance to thee God's hand will meet
His unimagined rest.
Losing Faith In God
Lately, I’ve been flooded with thoughts on how some people turn away from God
when the going gets tough and a lot of the time blame God for their
misfortunes instead of seeking Him for comfort and understanding. This
thought has plagued me time after time. While watching Season 1, Episode 8
Modern Love, a TV series about all different types of love in our modern
world, I heard this incredible statement during one of the episodes:
“Whenever anything bad happens, you should try and re-calibrate the universe
or whatever you want to call it with its opposites… If someone cuts you off
in traffic, you just are extra generous with the next person who wants to
get out; if someone steals your wallet, go to the poor box and make a
What a great way to live your life!
We all know life isn’t perfect, it was never intended to be that way, and
getting angry or blaming God isn’t a good use of the choices or free will God
has given us. The choices we make next will set the tone for the rest of
our day, weeks, months, or even years to come; not to mention the people we
come into contact with. See God gave us free will, and with free will comes
bad choices as well as good, made by you or someone who may come in contact
with your life in some way. We are all sinners. Some of us sin in ways that
only hurts us and others sin in ways that affect a lot more than just
themselves. We can’t ask God to take away all the bad that is in our lives.
If he did that wouldn’t be freewill. We can’t have it both ways and I think
most would agree that taking freewill away would not be a life we’d want to
live. So how can we deal with the bad without losing a God who loves us so
much...we have to find other ways of dealing with the bad. I truly believe
there is something good in every circumstance. Sometimes it is pretty
obvious, and then there are times that I’m oblivious to what it might be. I
ask God to reveal the good in His time. Sometimes the answer is revealed
quickly, other times it may be years later before I understand the good and
then there are the times I feel like I am not meant to know. Someday I hope
the answers will be revealed, but that probably won’t be until I meet my
Maker. And you know what, that is okay. A little mystery never hurt anyone
as long as you hold on to your faith that there was good in that
So I say, we look to our future with the same attributes as the statement
above. We find the opposites in the bad things in life and turn them into
good for the next person we come into contact with. My mother always used to
tell me, two wrongs never made a right, and she was correct in that!
Blaming, getting angry, or retaliating will only darken this already dark
world. Let’s make light out of our dark circumstances for the next person.
There are many different ways for poems to be an
influence on our community. Whether they are true believers, have no
faith or somewhere in between, we hope you were able to find a poem that speaks volumes.
