Again to Live


The world rejects Christ’s true report
All sinful flesh will fail
Each woman’s child still falling short
Will land condemned in jail


Rebels against the throne on high
Rejecting Christ as Lord
Seeking to hide even to die
To flee God’s vengeful sword


But death, through Christ has closed its gate
Hell’s jaws will open wide
How gruesome then a sinners fate
Beyond the great divide


Yet praise The Lord of lords above
The King of kings on high
Through faith and through His selfless love
We’ll rise; when once we die


Hope to live as never before
Receive the promised rest
Even to rise through Heaven’s door
When grace our soul has blessed


For if we seek The Master’s face
Turn now our backs to sin
The Promise of His saving grace
Will dawn and dwell within


Salvation’s grace is no reward
God’s love, can no one buy
But who acknowledge Jesus Lord
Will live and once but die


Accept The Truth, God's Lamb and Christ
Accept the grace He’ll give
Believe why He was sacrificed
Believe again to live.....

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.
