To See Jesus
The crowd was large
And Zacchaeus was small
His little legs ran to find
A towering tree so tall.
Up would be the only way
To see Jesus on that day
Zacchaeus, climbed upon a tree
And there his eyes did finally see.
Jesus was already aware
of the quiet , joyful stare
and looked up toward Zacchaeus
eye to eye - a perfect prayer.
A welcomed guest would Jesus be
in the house He came to save
a sinner who needed to be free
And lifted from the hand of the grave.
Luke 19: 9 And Jesus said unto him,
This day is salvation come to this house,
forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
Based on Luke 19:1-10
