Valentines Day With Jesus

For the wages of sin
is death; but the gift
of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ
our Lord. Rom. 6:23

Jesus does not send perfume,
To linger in the air;
Instead He sends salvation sweet,
To show how much He cares.

He doesn't bring me candy hearts,
In boxes of delight;
Instead He always lets me know
I'm precious in His sight.

He doesn't send out pretty cards,
Trimmed in shades of red;
Instead He gave His life for me,
His precious blood was shed.

He doesn't hand out fancy gifts,
Like we would send to mother;
Instead He sends a message clear,
To always love each other.

He doesn't give me teddy bears,
That whimper, please be mine;
Instead He gave His heart to me -
I wear it all the time.

He doesn't give me roses, pink,
For all the world to see;
Instead He gave eternal life.
That's good enough for me!
