Perfection, Perfection


Perfection’s not on earth achieved

Although it be our aim

When joining all who have believed

God’s just reward we’ll claim


With those who’ve lain in peaceful rest

Each saint who’s gone before

As bride complete, eternal blessed

We’ll rise through Heaven’s door


Though many years my journey’s run

Though failing here and there

I’ve felt the love of God’s true Son

He longs with us to share


I’ve felt His hand I’ve heard His voice

His caring arms so strong

Thank God I made life greatest choice

And sing this wondrous song


Its worth each moment sacrificed

Each effort, every pain

To guarantee I’ll live with Christ

I’d do it all again


I’d bear the cross I had to bear

I’d tread each extra mile

I‘d do it all because I care

To see my Saviour smile


Because I know I’m not alone

I’ll journey to my goal

Because I’ll see on Heaven’s throne

The One who saved my soul


Perfection may elude me yet

But this I understand

My many trials God won’t forget

When in The Promised Land.....

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.
