Now I Know


The devil’s such a lying cheat

I never knew before

Until You made my life complete

By knocking on my door


He’d been a thorn within my side

Till Jesus changed my mind

Taking the lust, the filth, the pride

Still plaguing all mankind


Satan’s evil without a doubt

Venomous through deceit

But then You come and flush it out

And make one’s joy complete


I wish I’d known You sooner Lord

Cleansing me free of sin

The devil then would just have roared

Instead of coming in


He felt Your wrath, Your vengeful sword

Sending him on his way

But soon he’ll burn in hell my Lord

Forever and a day


A Fortress; is Your awesome name

A mighty shield divine

Saving me from a life of shame

You’ve made salvation mine


The world should see as I do now

Praying Your word she’ll hear

How soon her knee to Christ would bow

How soon Your name she’d fear


She’d turn my God the same as I

She’d seek The Truth first hand

She’d see the devil’s every lie

Awake and understand.....

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.
