Real Haloween Treat

I have passed out these poems for many years as my Halloween treat and would like to share them with you.

One Spirit

Tonight’s a night when people think
Of witches, ghosts and such…
But there’s someone that kids should know
Who loves them very much!

He has the power that spirits don’t
He created you and me,
He came to tell us of our sins
And died for them on a tree.

The story doesn’t end there for
He soon arose again…
He said He’s coming back for all
Whose hearts would ask Him in!

I’m sure the name of this someone
Is one that you can guess…
The one who made the heavens and earth,
The Son of God: Jesus!

Tonight’s the night we love to hide
Behind a well-thought-up disguise…
But Jesus sees our very heart,
He even sees the hidden parts!
He knows we can’t disguise our sin
For soon we make mistakes again…
Anger, gossip, lies, and such,
Try as we might they trip us up!

So Jesus came to show us God
For He is the very heart of love…
He’s also holy, and we must see
If God in heaven we would see!

But since God knows that we are not,
He sent His Son to cleanse each blot
And stain of sin within each one
Who asks Him in and trusts His Son!

God so loved the world that He gave His Son, that whoever believes on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
