    Poem: Near to Jesus

    How can I feel near

    To Jesus each day?

    By reading the scriptures

    And kneeling to pray.

    How can I serve Him?

    That’s easy to see—

    By doing kind things for

    My dear family.

    How does it feel when

    His Spirit is near?

    I feel peaceful and calm,

    With faith and not fear.

    How can I show Him

    That I love Him too?

    I try to be like Him

    In all that I do.
