God Is Serious

God Is Serious


Singing through life, salvation’s song

Following Jesus’ lead

Upholding right and righting wrong

Planting with love life’s Seed


Is this today some fairy tale?

A legend parents tell?

We see the world, we watch it fail

But will it end in hell


Most serious is God on high

Of how we children fare

It saddens Him to see us die

Whilst life is free to share


Like selfish brats still running wild

We play and act the fool

Whilst God will have us reconciled

Away from Satan’s rule


But who has ears Truth to hear?

Who’ll spare a moment’s time?

Who’ll seek out Jesus whilst He’s near?

Who’ll turn their backs to crime?


How sad, must God be on His throne?

Whilst few see Christ as Lord

What must be done till hearts of stone

May flee the coming sword


Was not Christ’s life enough to pay?

Suffering so much pain

Are still man’s eyes so blind today?

We’d have Him die again


The price is paid the battle’s won

The world must comprehend

That life comes only through God’s Son

When knees to Him we bend.....

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.
