The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved

Post by linda56 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 1:00 pm

My throat has lumps in it, for I feel I cannot talk
My stomach is full of butterflies, from being in shock!
My tears are flowing endlessly, out of control
For you My Lord Jesus, whom I love with all my heart and soul!

It has been a long journey, now it must come to an end
I just cannot find the words to say good-bye to you My Lord, My Loving Friend!
It is breaking my heart so, seeing you suffer this way
But I will stay by your side, I won't turn away!

Many years now, it has been spoken about you
God would send a Messiah, to see his people through
I never imagined, it would happen in my earthly years
Now soon you must depart , my heart fills with tears!

I will to obey and teach what you have taught me
Forever, I will walk in your love and worship Thee!
For you are My Lord Jesus, who came out of love for us
As soon as I laid eyes upon you, you had my faith and trust!

I will do as you ask, I will look after your Mother
I will love her as you,as if I were your blood brother!
She will never be left alone, for I will be there for her always
I will be her loving son, providing for her, the rest of her days!

I won't fail you like I did before, on my strength I won't rely
But on yours my faithful Lord and friend, You know how hard I'll try!
Soon you will return to Our Heavenly Father, in Heaven Above
But I will continue your work, I, the Disciple Whom Jesus Loved!
