Pause for Poetry — Great News

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

Great News

by Frances Gregory Pasch

Do you have an empty feeling,

Despite what you’ve amassed?

Is satisfaction fleeting?

Do you find it does not last?

Do you feel like you’ve been cheated,

Have your dreams gone up in smoke?

I have exciting news for you. . .

News to give you hope

Let me tell you about Jesus.

He’s the answer to your prayer.

He never will forsake you;

He always will be there

To help you plan your future

To fill that empty place.

His gift to you is special—

It’s called “Amazing Grace.”

If you will just believe in Him.

It’s absolutely free.

He wants to give it to you

As He offered it to me.

So open up your heart today,

Welcome Jesus in.

He wants to give you freedom

By forgiving all your sins.

You’ll be a brand new person;

Your destiny secure.

When you die and go to heaven…

He will greet you at the door.
