Still We Come

Still we come
Each in our own fashion
To bow before
The Lord of all creation
Still we come
To kneel beside the manger
But to us
Praise God, He is no Stranger
Yet, still we ask
What can we bring that pleases
Such love as this
This One that we call Jesus

Still we come
To marvel at the wonder
Of God’s own Son
As babe within a manger
Still we come
In human imperfection
To bow before
Our Life and Resurrection
Oh lift your voice
This is the King of Glory
Sing and rejoice
This is Love’s perfect story

Still we come
Fraught with sin’s vile diseases
For there is none
That cannot come to Jesus
In wonderment
Drawn by His vast compassion
To love beyond
Man’s earth-dimmed comprehension
Still we come
To bow before our Savior
Man’s common bond
Is Jesus Christ forever

Janet Martin

This was inspired by the little guys I baby-sit...
It was the Nativity Scene, not the tree, that captured their wonder...

(I did not notice that they had combined both sets until after the picture, oh well:)


  1. I have a love for verse well done, and I love this. :)

  2. Thank-you, Buddah, This is one of those verses that fell into my heart as I watched him in childish wonder, completely mesmerized by the scene...

  3. This is just lovely, Janet. And the picture is perfect with it.

  4. Oh Violet, it was one of those moments that just reaches out and grabs the heart in the most tender of ways, as only a child can do, esp, when discovering Jesus.

    thank-you so much for leaving your thoughts.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
