I See


I See

Author Unknown

I’d rather see a sermon,
Than hear one any day;
I’d rather one should walk with me
Than merely show the way.
The eye’s a better pupil
And more willing than the ear;
Fine counsel is confusing
But examples always clear.
And the best of all the preachers
Are the ones who live their creed,
For to see good put in action
Is what everybody needs,
I soon can learn to do it,
If you let me see it done.
I can watch your hands in action,
But your tongue too fast may run.
And the sermon you deliver
May be very wise and true,
But I’d rather get my lesson
By observing what you do,
For I might misunderstand you
And the high advice you give;
But there’s no misunderstanding
How you act and how you live.

I Shall Be Whole - By: Debbie Isenbletter



I SHALL BE WHOLE

By: Debbie Isenbletter
6/12/87

A woman sick for twelve long years,
heard that Jesus came.
If she could only touch His robe,
she'd never be the same.

"I shall be whole," she cried with faith,
as Jesus closer came.
I am unclean but just one touch,
I'll never be the same.

The crowd pressed close around the man,
they'd heard about His fame.
With desperate courage she moved in close,
yet hung her head in shame.

I cannot speak, I am unclean,
but just one touch I'll steal.
The hem of His dear garment,
is all that I will feel.

I shall be whole, I know I will,
her heart cried out with faith.
And as she touched that dusty robe,
a miracle took place.

Jesus turned and looked around,
for virtue He felt leave.
A hand of faith had touched His robe,
a heart that did believe.

"Who touched me?" He asked aloud,
but knowing it was she.
He looked at her who touched His robe,
and knew she was set free.

The woman fell down at His feet,
pouring out her soul.
And Jesus spoke with tenderness,
"Thy faith hath made thee whole."
