It's Christ, Christ We Need

It's Christ, Christ We Need


It’s Christ, Christ, Christ we need

The Lamb who chose to die

Once hearts are planted with this Seed

We cease to wonder why


God’s Righteousness is whom we seek

His Seed of Truth and Light

The love to strengthen souls found weak

Who’ve lost the will to fight


God’s precious Lamp to show The Way

The path through Heaven’s Door

That God will open wide one day

When death becomes no more


But now by grace there’s life to reap

There’s victory to be won

We need to wakeup from our sleep

Through Christ; God’s Lamb and Son


We need, when Truth is truly ours

The truth of Calvary’s tree

Through which God gives wondrous powers

To set the captive free


But first we need The Living Christ

God’s Son of virgin birth

To know The Lord was sacrificed

To fill with love the earth


God’s Love that came as flesh and bone

To flood man’s soul and mind

To take from hearts the heavy stone

And heal the eyes yet blind


With sight and spirit full restored

We’ll seek Salvation’s Gates

With Christ as King and personal Lord

Eternal life awaits.....

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.
