Wonderful to Me

Wonderful to Me

 

My God is wonderful to me

Your love has won my heart

The Truth has led my eyes to see

Wonders You would impart

 

My life by grace begins again

With righteousness in view

Devoid of guilt of shameful pain

Yearning to live with You

 

Let true love be my prime desire

Season my eyes with salt

Ignite my heart with tongues of Fire

Consuming every fault

 

How great to me You are my Lord

My soul is filled with awe

Surely the world can ill afford

To close on You her door

 

Anoint my eyes my reckless tongue

Guide me in The Light

That I may speak to old and young

Of how to win the fight

 

To fight the fight above all wars

Stretch caring hands in love

Joining with Christ the common cause

In unity above

 

Lord teach me what I need to know

To live to share Your plan

To do the work you give below

And serve my fellow man

 

Humbly washing my brother’s feet

Walking the extra mile

Fighting until the devil’s beat

And see my Saviour smile.....

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.
