Faith for the Faithful


Through righteousness that’s not our own

Through gifts we now receive

Through Fire that melts one’s heart of stone

We’ve faith to Christ believe


We’ve hope to see what’s never been

What no ones had to share

No ear has heard no eye has seen

Yet know through faith is there


Through faith we’ll see our God above

In glory live in peace

Through faith we’ll share eternal love

Where joy will never cease


Even each time we fall asleep

True faith will play its part

Trusting The Lord our soul to keep

And holding fast our heart


Right there it seems to Christians odd

Why atheists don’t die

Unconsciously, they’ll trust in God

Yet consciously deny


Thank God for gifts beyond supreme

For faith in Christ divine

Thank God for grace, life’s living Stream

Through which true life is mine


It’s mine because of faith’s embrace

Because of love unknown

Because of grace to see the face

Of Christ on Heaven’s throne


Alone; I’d fail to walk the walk

I’d fail to claim this boast

No flesh and bone could talk the talk

Without the Holy Ghost....

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.
