My Name


Though born in sin living in shame

I walked hell’s selfish path

Till love revealed a brand new name

Would save me from the wrath


I had but seek The Living Christ

Humbly on bended knee

Learning why He was sacrificed

My sinful soul to free


I’m lifting hands, stamping my feet

Singing life’s victory song

I’ve joined Salvation’s small elite

And know where I belong


How swift true love can change one’s soul

Give sight unto the blind

Can heal a heart can raise one’s goal

Can change an errant mind


My soul is free I’m safe I’m sound

Just like a bird in flight

I’m souring now to higher ground

Towards the realm of Light


Thank God for Heaven’s Lamb & Son

God Holy Ghost within

For every fight each battle won

For those I’m bound to win


I’m thanking God for all His love

For all He’s had to share

For etching my name high above

In answer to my prayer


Within Life’s book, within His hand

Daily on Jesus’ mind

Even within The Promised Land

My name is now to find…..

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.
