If When We Fail

If When We Fail


We need to love our fellow man

Forgive the deeds they’ve done

For this is surely Heaven’s plan

Why God sent down His Son


Upon the cross, Christ too forgave

Loving with broken heart

He died so man would see no grave

And give a brand new start


From God’s own Word we understand

For Christ, to wear His crown

Humility; must take a stand

One’s pride must crumble down


But if we fail and if we fall

If from life’s path we stray

Let contrite hearts to Jesus call

Seeking God’s chosen Way


When deep regret rips souls apart

When Satan finds us weak

A silent prayer can bless the heart

When righteousness we seek


To heart and soul look deep inside

Let Truth residing reign

Let Light expose the filth we hide

Let Fire cleanse every stain


Let self no longer interfere

Nor disobedience rule

Let heart and soul learn God to fear

And play no more the fool


But woe to those with selfish eyes

Refusing Christ as guide

Will not The Lord their prayers despise?

And turn His face to hide?.....

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.
