Let Jesus Come
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Let Jesus Come


Though gratis is the life to come

Where souls may never die

We still persist on acting dumb

While time goes flashing by


We see them here we watch them there

Falling along The Way

Like blinded fools without a share

Promised beyond today


Is it your heart is it your mind?

Is it fear and doubt?

Is it the stuff you’ll leave behind?

That keeps you losing out


Just ask yourself if this will last

These trifles now you see

When soon this day has long since past

Where will your laughter be


Let life be more than just in view

Let Heaven make you whole

Let Jesus be life’s light to you

And save your precious soul


Allow God’s Word now set you free

Let truth lay down your course

See Jesus dying on The Tree

Become your driving force


Let wisdom reign, let true love rule

Let grace flow through your heart

Become no more the devil’s tool

Let Satan swift depart


Let Jesus take away your sin

Let Jesus be your guide

Let Jesus breathe new life within

And live with God inside.....

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.
