Entirely True

 

Number the stars, sand on your shores

Fathom how much they weigh

All that is mine soon may be yours

Living my chosen Way

 

Remain in me as I in you

Refuse; and live in vain

Each pledge I make is always true

And ever shall remain

 

I see you in the darkest place

I hear the words you speak

I know you wish to see my face

But fail The Truth to seek

 

I know in life the steps you take

The secret things you do

But day and night your God’s awake

With everything in view

 

This world of yours is not of me

My handwork’s not the same

Repent my child, I’ll set you free

To bear my holy name

 

Pay high regard to all I say

God’s Word is always true

Who fail to live my righteous way

Torment will soon pursue

 

Recall The Truth that Jesus taught

Live life The Way He showed

Believe my child His true report

Kick not against the goad

 

Who overcome; will flee the sword

Will join my royal renown

With all I have as rich reward

An everlasting crown.....Number the stars, sand on your shores

Fathom how much they weigh

All that is mine soon may be yours

Living my chosen Way

 

Remain in me as I in you

Refuse; and live in vain

Each pledge I make is always true

And ever shall remain

 

I see you in the darkest place

I hear the words you speak

I know you wish to see my face

But fail The Truth to seek

 

I know in life the steps you take

The secret things you do

But day and night your God’s awake

With everything in view

 

This world of yours is not of me

My handwork’s not the same

Repent my child, I’ll set you free

To bear my holy name

 

Pay high regard to all I say

God’s Word is always true

Who fail to live my righteous way

Torment will soon pursue

 

Recall The Truth that Jesus taught

Live life The Way He showed

Believe my child His true report

Kick not against the goad

 

Who overcome; will flee the sword

Will join my royal renown

With all I have as rich reward

An everlasting crown.....

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.
