The Secret of Love....

The Secret of Love


Countless witnesses have agreed

Or leastways come to see

A little love is all we need

To set one's spirit free


Love’s The Father, love’s The Son

The Holy Spirit too

Its love, love, love combined in One

Ordained for Jesus’ few


How much love does The Father give?

And from God's Spirit flow?

How much from Christ so man may live?

Seeking The Truth to know


The Truth that love’s the mighty source

When rage would pay a call

Quietly running it’s wondrous course

Seeing ill tempers fall


The Truth is hidden far too oft

When anger’s at it’s height

Through loves warm voice tenderly soft

We lose the will to fight


No weapon formed could ever stand

No mightier shield could be

Than which now flows through every land

Through Calvary’s dreadful tree


Who can value what Heaven sent?

Can weigh or test love’s stress?

Angels on high, saints who repent

Could never hope to guess


Life’s greatest power’s simply love

Obedience is the key

Let’s walk The Way that leads above

That Heaven’s Love made free.....

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.
