My Friend’s Names

by Marlene Mesot

I have a friend you cannot see.
When I am down, He strengthens me.
From sin and death He’ll set you free.
His name is Friend of Sinners.

I have a friend you cannot hear.
His loving kindness casts out fear.
Throughout the Bible His voice becomes clear.
His name is Living Word.

I have a friend of fragrance rare.
His handiwork is beyond compare.
Evidence of His creation exists everywhere.
His name is Author of Life.

I have a friend who has tasted pain.
He can help. Don’t struggle in vain.
Redemption is sweet. Eternal life is your gain.
His name is Blessed Savior!

I have a friend who can touch your heart.
If you trust in Him, He will never part.
In Him are truth and life. Don’t break His heart.
His name is Wonderful Counselor.

My friend, I know He loves you, too.
Give Him your heart. He’ll bring life anew.
He died and rose in victory for me and for you.
His name is Jesus Christ, the Messiah!

My friend’s names are numerous, not few.
He is one like no other, it is true.
His name should not be used in vain.
His name is above all other names.

NOTE: Following Jesus and writing for His glory are my passions. I wrote this poem to show the many faces of His magnificence, which He shows to us by His grace, on our behalf.
