True Love Revealed

 

Who knows The Father’s Lamb & Son?

The Light of earth and sky

That through His blood the victory won

Brings endless life on high

 

While Jesus lived ere time began

Before man came to be

He must have known of Heaven’s plan

And all about The Tree

 

He must have seen man’s heart and mind

Hatred , deceit and lies

Such waywardness to make one blind

Until the time one dies

 

He must have known that man would fail

Would die and feed the grave

To err and stray in Satan’s jail

If no one were to save

 

What sort of love does grace possess?

What yet remains unknown?

What woman’s child could even guess?

Power on Heaven’s throne

 

Christ lived before mankind was born

Chose suffering and pain

That man could witness true love’s dawn

And live through birth again

 

Who can explain such things as these?

Who can deny there source

Who can renounce to bend their knees?

Now love has run its course

 

Such love as Jesus has revealed

Selfless simple and true

Which magnificent fruitful yield

Will eternity pursue?.....

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.
