I See You, Jesus

Many a man's wish may be
To sing in a grand hall,
To fill a cathedral or mall,
To serenade the rich
With the power of every pitch.

But I see you, Jesus, Lord,
Alone on Calvary,
Not in glamor this world affords,
Dying to set me free
That I, your glory may see.

I see you, Jesus,
Caring for the dying and poor.
I see you, Jesus,
With your sweet Spirit,
Knocking at their heart's living door.

I see you, Jesus,
Giving life to souls without hope.
I see you, Jesus,
Saving those vexed sore
Saying, "Follow me to Bright Shore."

    3. I suppose. I just believe in Jesus and the Bible. And I think there are sincere Christians in just about every denomination.
