I Know


I know Christ came through virgin birth

I know of Mary’s plight

I know as man God walked the earth

Restoring life and sight


I know God’s Christ, God’s Lamb God’s Son

Of Heaven’s plan and mine

Of Calvary’s Cross, Christ’s victories won

When blood ran free as wine


Twas not for pride or selfish gain

Nor did He come as King

But serve in Satan’s dark domain

The Father’s praise to sing


He had no bed, pillow nor quilt

But one unselfish goal

He came to show to take man’s guilt

To save the captive soul


I know He had no place to rest

Though once enthroned on high

As man; He passed life’s every test

And chose in shame to die


Unbearable! He suffered pain

As mortal flesh and bone

Endless as King to live again

As life’s true Cornerstone


Through whom by grace we too may rise

Through whom He has to give

With Heaven’s Dove through Paradise

Eternally to live


Gentle He comes with powers Divine

As Comforter and Guide

Enabling those to rise and shine

Whom Christ has glorified.....

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.
