How Do We Please God?

How Do We Please God?


What can our living God appease?

How do we quench hell’s Fire?

How can our human efforts please?

What is His key desire?


No effort for God will go amiss

All prayer will reach above

With pure thought His face we kiss

His arm is moved with love


For love is what life’s all about

Love’s what we daily seek

It frees from fear makes free from doubt

And strengthens souls once weak


Through true obedience love is shown

Be it God’s be it man’s

Through its practice; love well sown

We’ll reap as Heaven plans


Love will provide for Jesus’ queen

The strength she needs to fight

Through service love is plainly seen

Within the realm of Light


Washing one another’s feet

Its love we see excel

For through such trials when made complete

True love will save from hell


Love is so simple to provide

Its longing to be free

Sharing on earth what others hide

We’ll see the victory


True love we’ll find is Heaven’s Key

Opening wide The Door

Such from God its ours for free

Both now and evermore.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
