Jesus Christ

If Jesus Came....

Would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in?
Or hide some magazines, and put the Bible where they'd been?
Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?
And I wonder.. if the Savior spent a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing, the things you always do?
Would you go right on saying, the things you always say?
Would life for you continue as it does from day to day?
Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you go?
Or would you maybe change your plans for just a day or so?
Would you be glad to have Him meet your closest friends?
Or would you hope they stay away until His visit ends?
Would you be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know, the things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person, to spend some time with you.

Editor note: The following message was just received by ComPortOne

I just noticed the "If Jesus Came" poem linked to the ComportOne web page. Though I don't know who the author is, I do know that poem was at one time made into a song. I remember listening to it on a record some years ago when I was younger. I can still remember the tune. Knowing it was made into a song, I wonder if the author is truly unknown? -H.T.

What about it readers? If you know the author of the preceding poem, please email ComPortOne so we can include the proper credit line. - Connie Eccles, CEO of ComPortOne
