Obedience, Love, and Faith

Obedience, Love , and Faith


The things we feel the things we see

The truth Christ had to tell

Continues still to set us free

From chains and endless hell


We hope to sit upon a throne

Through faith to break death’s mould

It’s through one’s faith in Christ alone

We’ll walk the streets of gold


Through love, we’ll see our Father’s face

Through love we’ll live on high

Through Jesus’ love God’s boundless grace

We’ll have what none can buy


Through love’s obedience, crowned with life

As sons of God we’ll rise

With robe and ring as Jesus’ wife

We’ll open wide our eyes


We’ll see what no man’s ever seen

We’ll hear what no one’s heard

We’ll reign proclaimed as Jesus’ queen

Through God’s almighty Word


From works alone this cannot be

Attending church won’t do

Through Christ alone is Heaven’s key

The door to life anew


Through light that makes the sun look pale

We learn to understand

Through Jesus’ blood we cannot fail

To reach The Promised Land


When rid of sin and wanton shame

While Heaven’s Hill we climb

We’ll stand adorned in glowing flame

Beyond the realms of time.....

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.
