How's It Done


“Satan will cheat, devils deceive

Though eyes are made to see

Throughout the ages few believe

The Truth of Calvary’s Tree”


“Can knowledge reveal Heaven’s plan?

Can vigour free from hell?

Can strength defeat the devil’s clan?

Has wisdom life to sell?


Who can pay redemption’s price?

We’ll purchase Heaven’s crown?

Can being good, through being nice?

Obtain salvation’s gown?


The bibles says we cannot pay

However hard we try

We cannot buy a single day?

Or stay the day we’ll die


Who can escape God’s vengeful sword?

Who can escape His wrath

How can we live with Christ The Lord

And walk His chosen path”


“Obedience is to life the key

Faith is the fruit of grace

God’s wondrous Truth will set us free

And see through love His face


Faithful is every battle won

True love will conquer sin

Obey the Father, Christ His Son

The living Flame within


Love God, yourself, love friend and foe

Love Truth walking with grace

Such love will help true love to flow

Until you see God’s face”.....

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.
