What Brings Salvation

What Brings Salvation


We all have trampled shameful ground

Ere safely in a pew

Is it perchance we’re Heaven bound

Or from the good we do?


Is it because we bend the knee?

Because of whom we know

Predestination’s guarantee

Or through the church we go


Is not obedience; Heaven’s course

Standing by Heaven’s plan

With Jesus Christ’s our only source

Loving our fellow man


By helping neighbours loving The Lord

Selflessly walking true

We’ll flee death’s hand God’s vengeful sword

Keeping The Truth in view


Through service, God we show our worth

Walking His chosen Way

Through Jesus’ blood and brand new birth

In faith we’ll rise one day


By faith we walk by God’s decree

Obeying each command

The things unseen, through faith we see

And truly understand


We comprehend the secret things

The spiritual divine

By Heaven’s grace Salvation sings

Pouring forth Truth as wine


Walking The Way at God’s command

Living as Christ foretold

We’ll rise to dwell God’s Promised Land

With streets of burnished gold.....

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.
