Depths of Faith

Depths of Faith


Too few accept God’s saving grace

Too few seek Truth and Light

Too few seek out The Father’s face

And fail to fight The Fight


Whilst God’s promise is not received

Thinking hell’s shame to hide

Hopeless to rise living deceived

Unmoved; not few have died


Until one’s roots reach depths unknown

To doubt; locked fast our door

Until true faith reigns on life’s throne

The dragon’s jaws will roar


Through hope, true life no one can seize

No force life’s crown can win

Humility though on bended knees

Can conquer any sin


When tested; faith we see endure

Where trust is seen alive

One’s hope for life will be secure

Forever more to thrive


Until the point of worldly death

Until the grave’s in view

Until we spend our final breath

Our God will stay us true


Through faith this world one day we’ll leave

Leaving behind its cares

We’ll rise to Him we now believe

To reign as righteous heirs


Though not for thought nor word or deed

Not silver, gold nor jewel

But through our faith in Christ God’s Seed

And not as Satan’s tool.....

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.
