Join the Climb


With Heaven’s King I’m safe and sound

In Christ I now belong

Walking The Way to holy ground

Singing God’s chosen song


The song of grace of love and care

The song of selfless deed

The song of Truth desire to share

With other souls in need


I’m climbing up however slow

With Heaven’s guiding Light

He knows The Route I need to go

To win life’s daily fight


At times it’s hard to walk The Path

The Road of love divine

But as it leads from endless wrath

I need to make it mine


Make mine; because to live I must

Travel as Christ before

Because by faith in Him I trust

To open Heaven’s Door


Because of Jesus’ selfless love

Because His Way is sure

I know I’ll reach my goal above

Though trials I must endure


I’m not afraid with Jesus Christ

Knowing He understands

For this my Lord was sacrificed

That I be in His hands


I too was lost but found well here

Within my Saviours hand

Without remorse, doubt, or fear

I’ll reach my Father’s 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.
