Poems: He Was There and My All and All

He Was There (Exodus 33:14)

Jesus heard when you prayed last night,

He talked with God about you;

Jesus was there when you fought that fight.

He is going to bring you through.

Jesus knew when you shed those tears,

But you did not weep alone;

For the burden you thought too heavy to bear,

He made His very own.

Jesus Himself was touched by that trial,

Which you could not understand;

Jesus stood by as you almost fell,

And lovingly grasped your hand.

Jesus cared when you bore that pain;

Indeed He bore it too;

He felt each pang, ache in your heart,

Because of His love for you.

Jesus was grieved when you doubted His love,

But He gave you grace to go on;

Jesus rejoiced as you trusted Him,

The only Trustworthy One.

His Presence shall even be with you,

No need to be anxious or fret;

Wonderful Lord! He was there all the tine,

He has never forsaken you yet.

 This poem was sent to me  in 1991 by missionary Mary Baker. It was written by Mrs. Nell Hawkins,  Liverpool, England

My All and All 

Lord, You are my soul’s refuge and delight,

In my affliction, it is upon You that I call;

My comfort by day and my song in the night,

Lord, you are my salvation, my all and all.

My All and All was taken from  Gary Smith’s book Life Changing Thoughts

  1. Good afternoon,

    I hope you are well.

    I see that you were given a poem by a lady called Nell Hawkins.

    My nan also has a different poem written by Nell Hawkins, that someone gave to her.

    On the card that my nan has, there is an address for Nell. My nan has written to her enclosing a cheque and request copies of that poem, however we have not heard back.

    I wonder if at all you have up to date contact details for Mrs Hawkins, or know of anywhere that we could obtain some of her work? The poem means alot to my nan and she would like to be able to give cards with it on to her friends and family.

    Best wishes,

    Liam Miccoli
