One Lovely Day


The things we feel the things we see

The Truth love had to tell

Continues yet to set us free

From traps that lead to hell


Through love is melt a heart of stone

Through love we break death’s mould

Through love our faith in Christ alone

We’ll walk the streets of gold


Through selfless love our Father’s face!

We’ll see one day on high

Through Jesus’ love and boundless grace

We’ll have what none can buy


Through love’s obedience, crowned with life

As sons of God we’ll rise

Enrobed with ring as Jesus’ wife

We’ll see through perfect eyes


We’ll see what man has never seen

We’ll hear what no one’s heard

Reigning proclaimed life’s righteous queen

Through God’s almighty Word


From works alone this cannot be

Attending church won’t do

Obedience though is Heaven’s key

The door to life anew


Through love we make the sun look pale

We’re taught to understand

That through Christ’s love we cannot fail

To reach The Promised Land


We hear, we see, we know its love

In love we find The Way

Through love's great strength to Christ above

We’ll rise one lovely day.....

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.
