This Awesome God

This Awesome God


Whose eyes behold the might of seas

Who hear a mountain stream

Survey the tall majestic trees

Can see life’s not a dream


Can see creation at a glance

Life’s jewel box unsealed

Without great pomp or circumstance

God’s mighty hand revealed


This awesome God still much unknown

So little taken heed

Waits patient from His Glory Throne

To meet our daily need


This righteous God who sees all things

The secrets each would hide

Who hears each song creation sings

Who knows our thoughts inside


This self same God is deep in love

So few of us exalt

Enthroned majestically above

Is jealous to a fault


He knows our names our every flaw

The evil we connive

Still choice blessings He longs to pour

To help the lost survive


This God of ours loves you and I

Though death and grave awaits

He longs to grant before we die

The Key to Heaven’s gates


He sent His Son to die instead

To save fooled sheep astray

To heal our souls give daily bread

And teach to walk His Way.....

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.
