"Will Faith Be Found"

 

Who’s life is right who’s never wrong?

Who’s victory’s wrought on earth

Dancing defeat to Satan’s song

Bringing life’s seed to birth

 

In rags or robes scarlet and blue

Crowns festooned with gold

Where is the change through birth anew

The living Christ foretold

 

Where is the faith where is the love?

The selfless deeds of light

Where are the prayers through Christ above?

To fight the righteous fight

 

The face of God we need to seek

Gathering near and far

Presenting selves humble and meek

Before The Morning Star

 

Consulting Jesus night and day

Bowing faithful one’s knees

Seeking counsel, His virtuous way

Our Father’s will to please

 

Father of every living soul

Of truth of love of light

Who heals who makes the broken whole

Prepared to win life’s fight

 

Who can ascend God’s holy hill?

To stand before His eyes

Obedience; to His perfect will

Brings freedom to arise

 

We’ll often fail may fall God short

During life’s ardent climb

But faith in Jesus’ true report

Will stand the test 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.
