Let Love

 

Let love be in let love be out

Let love be in-between

Let love conquer each foolish doubt

Hindering Jesus’ queen

 

Let love my God with me reside

Let love portray my goal

Let love turn back hell’s tempting tide

And bless my heart and soul

 

Let love restrain my worldly stress

Let love my life adorn

Let love my aching heart caress

And be in love reborn

 

Let love persuade my every thought

Strengthen at times when weak

Let love evoke Christ’s true report

Each time my tongue would speak

 

Let love go forth and onward Lord

Defend my front and rear

Let love turn back life’s vengeful sword

And guide me whilst I’m here

 

Let love all hate in me restrain

Be selfless, strong and pure

Let love look through my window pane

And in and out my door

 

Let love’s true Flame continue burn

Let love inside me thrive

Let all the world my God soon learn

True love can all survive

 

Let love survey my wayward past

My waywardness forgive

When love’s prevailed life’s stormy blast

Allow this child to live.....

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.
