What Jesus Did
Sacrilegious! Immoral! Wrong!
So self-righteous is the song
They sing against any man
That they do not understand
And in the Lord's mighty name
Call their lives a disguistful shame
Speak out my friend, they'll judge you too
And ask you what would Jesus do.

An unwed father at nineteen,
A two year old daughter he'd never seen
A life full of drugs and crime
He'd just finished doing time
Released two month before Christmas came
Without a penny to his name.
When a poor man heard the tale
He sent a letter in the mail
And arrived at the young man's door
And then he took him shopping for
Gifts for him, his daughter and mother
To one store after another
He left him with a kind, farewell bid
That day I saw what Jesus did

Two men walking, hand in hand
A truck pulls over and grabs one man
They "teach him a lesson," as they say
Leave him bloody as they drive away
A woman sees him in the mud
Takes him in and dries his blood
Calls a doctor and his friend
That day I saw what Jesus did

At just fifteen, she makes a visit
To an abortion clinic
Day later, she sits and cries
Tears run endlessly down her eyes
She can hear her friends whisper
Monster, murdered, baby killer
With a tear-marked face, she takes a walk
Stranger stops her to sit and talk
Listens silentely without a word
Until her whole story is heard
Then he embraced her and the pain she hid
That day I saw what Jesus did

Remember before you cast your stone
That you have sins of your own
Jesus in his sinless glory
Just showed love in every story
The tax collector, harlot, sinner
Were the ones Jesus sat with at his dinner
Never once did he condemn
When they failed, he said try again
Before you condemn, remember, you're sinners too
So ask yourself what would Jesus do.

Sasha, I am pretty new here at CP
and am not familiar with everyones
work yet. I want you to know this
poem is one of the most touching
I have read. Your faith and love
the Saviour shines through in
every line. I am going to add it
to my favorites because it lifted
my spirits during all the turmoil
and sadness I have been feeling
since the Tsunami tragedy.
Warm regards, Linda McCoy

So touching, I've been kind of hazy about believing in god lately, but this actually made me think, and gain a little more faith, thanks..
