A Brand New Day


Your righteousness let no one doubt

Its grace, through Christ my Son

Although the world may twist and shout

Life’s race will not be won


The Truth will stand and nothing less

True love will wear a crown

Who practice these; The Lord will bless

All else will crumble down


A fresh new day will soon be born

Where enemies run free

But who on earth will bless the dawn?

What woman’s child will see?


Most hearts have grown as hard as stone

Most necks are stiff as iron

Churches serve God with mouth alone

And think they’re of The Vine


Is God a fool that fails to see?

Did Jesus die for nought?

Why don’t you live as I decree?

Not as a whore who’s bought


Make no mistake that’s what you are

Carousing through the night

If when your heart from Christ is far

Your Satan’s cheap delight


Wake up; before the day is through

Repent; change now your course

Rise up begin your life anew

Reject the devil’s source


I’ve loved you from the very start

I made your form with love

Come soften now your stony heart

And join with Christ above.....

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.
