Let One's Reason Be Love
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Let One's Reason be Love


Whatever God would have us do

Before rising above

Let righteousness our hearts pursue

And Heaven’s Way be love


When love has been our driving force

Walking the extra mile

The Lord will rich one’s life endorse

Rewarding with a smile


Each frown of Christ one’s soul can feel

Each pain our Saviour bears

His tender heart’s forever real

As is the love He shares


That love; that brought Him to the tree

That heals the blind and lame

That same still cleansing you and me

Of selfish sin and shame


So when we walk love’s chosen path

When battling death’s dark vale

Our fruits will save from endless wrath

And free from hell’s dark jail


Let love go forth and take the rear

Let love be in and out

Let love cast out one’s every fear

And rid our foolish doubt


True love’s a gift through Jesus Christ

Life’s force in truth receive

Through which God’s Lamb was sacrificed

That we today believe


The smallest child may understand

To love and not be blind

To spread true love through every land

God’s endless love to find.....

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.
