In a lucid night’s dream
In a deep silent sleep
I saw Christ’s body
Tending His sheep

I watched as His feet
Ne’er missing a step
Took hope to the poor
Food and clothing they left

I watched as His knees
Ne’er failing to kneel
Both morning and night
Father’s direction to seal

I watched as His legs
Ne’er tiring they raced
To homes of the grieving
Delivering God’s grace

I watched as His heart
Ne’er skipping a beat
Freely loving all people
No conditions to meet

I watched as His arms
Ne’er stopping to rest
From holding the children
Close to His breast

I watched as His hands
Ne’er ceasing to take
The Gospel Message to all
Eternal homes at stake

I watched as His shoulders
Ne’er resting until
Every burden was carried
Up Calvary’s hill

In a lucid night’s dream
I saw Christ as the head
“Well done faithful servant”
Were the words that He said

A poem! I like how you emphasized each body part and the told their "job".
The rhyme and rhythm was good. Well done

"From holding the children,
Close to His breast"
I love that image of Jesus - You also show some good action images of Jesus' ministry in short, tight verses. Nicely done!
