Knowledge by Faith


I’m safe and sound in Jesus’ Hand

I’ve love within His arms

I’ve wisdom, knowledge and understand

The wiles of Satan’s charms


Knowing the source of Satan’s pride

I know his secret place

The traps and snares he seeks to hide

Each masquerading face


I know The Truth, The Great I Am

I’ll suffer no more loss

I won’t be moved from Heaven’s Lamb

Nor shadow of His Cross


Knowing God’s grace God’s faithful Son

True fellowship with Light

I know by faith each battle’s won

That still remains to fight


Knowing the might of Jesus’ hand

The power of His arm

His love His grace His great command

Gives cause for no alarm


Here I stand, here I’ll stay

Here life’s song I’ll sing

Never again to roam nor stray

From under Jesus’ wing


I’ve faith for glory’s sweet reward

Of love of joy of peace

When laying down my victor’s sword

Where tears forever cease


Remaining calm forever true

Planted within The Vine

I know God’s eyes have all in view

And Heaven’s grace is mind.....

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.
