I wrote this hymn a few years ago – even wrote some music to it, but not being a musician never could get it right. It anyone would like to write some music to it, feel free. I only ask that my name always be attached to it, as it is a personal account of the three times Jesus actually came to my aid and 1) soothed my soul; 2)actually saved me from great bodily harm, if not death; and 3)healed me, body and soul, in church.
Jesus Blessed Me
I was hurting, pain was great, my soul longed for comfort,
All anguish, grief and despair, haunted my rapport,
Then Jesus passed to me peace beyond measure,
Peace beyond understanding, He gave his love to me.
Threatened darkly, beaten down, menacing terror strong,
I called out with all my might, reaching to my Lord,
Then Jesus came to me, Jesus came to me,
Jesus came and saved me, He saved me from all sin.
Body racked with so much pain, barely able to stand,
My soul cried out to Jesus for his touch to me.
Then Jesus came to me, yes Jesus healed me,
Jesus came and healed me, He healed me of all pain.
With God’s help Jesus came and healed my wounds and heart
With his everlasting love he changed my whole life.
He saved me, He healed me and gave me His peace.
Yes, He saved me, healed me and blessed me with His love.
