Now Buy the Truth

Now Buy the Truth


The world lives faster every day

The fool takes up the chase

Through selfishness we’ve lost The Way

Whilst truth is hard to trace


If foolishness could see the light

We’d swiftly wonder why

We’d cease The Lord our God to fight

And see the devil’s lie


Instead we seek our pots of gold

For rainbows in the blue

Hoping to buy what can’t be sold

And hunt for something new


We need to see there’s something wrong

To life, there must be more

Cease now to sing our selfish song

And open wisdom’s door


For though on earth we come with nought

Yet rich; we may depart

When humble souls The Truth have bought

Through love guiding the heart


To Heaven’s door The Way is free

To endless life above

When to God’s Lamb The Truth we see

And humbly pledge our love


At first of course this seems unreal

The facts are so profound

But then a while when Christ we feel

We see the higher ground


Salvation’s true its here today!

God’s Kingdom’s found within

Let’s seek The Truth whilst still we may

And cleanse our lives of sin .....

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.
