My Journey to God

Jesus is Coming

Jesus is coming to my house
To dine with me today,
My heart longs for his visit,
That will brighten my day.

After a life of serving others,
I’m left alone most days,
That’s why I’m so excited,
Jesus is coming today.

I’ll be clothed in my pajamas,
For it’s hard to dress these days,
But it doesn’t really matter
For Jesus is coming today.

He comes with my special friend
Who brightens each of my days,
When she brings me Communion,
And listens to my stories again.
