If

 

If by God’s grace you’ve come to live

Through Jesus'  outstretched hand

You’ve power received, others to give

Power to understand

 

Consider what The Lord has done

Lend ear to all He’s said

Receive the balm through Christ His Son

To raise the walking dead

 

Put on the shoes of lasting peace

Take up your faithful shield

Bring others to a swift release

When truth of Christ’s revealed

 

Make known God’s Lamb was sacrificed

God’s Son who chose to die

The one and only Jesus Christ

The King enthroned on high

 

Make known the reason Jesus came

The power of His blood

The power through His holy name

To live the way we should

 

Be shrewd as snakes yet like a dove

Walk gentle wise and true

Allow the world see Jesus’ love

That leads to life anew

 

Allow the lost to see your light

The Light of truth divine

Till blinded eyes receive their sight

And have God’s Lamp to shine

 

Allow The Truth to spread as yeast

Let righteousness pursue

Invite each sinner to the feast

As Jesus Christ called you.....

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.
