Let Light In

Let Light In


You’re walking tall you seldom fail

Scarcely shed a tear

Giving no thought of those in jail

Who live to die in fear


You’re walking dead devoid of Light

Bound up with selfish chains

At risk to lose life’s vital fight

If no one yet explains


One’s heart must have some pity there

Some tenderness of soul

Concern, compassion, love and care

To find life’s splendid goal


The Way to everlasting peace

Pleasures of joy unknown

Where sounds of laughter never cease

Where love is on the throne


Perhaps you’re bound with foolish pride

Perhaps you fail to see

Sin has your soul so firmly tied

You’ve lost all hope to flee


There’s just one way! One certain road

No fool would cast aside

Give Christ my friend your heavy load

Let Jesus turn the tide


Open to love, your selfish door

Receive of Jesus’ Breath

Repent, escape quick and sure

The ice cold hands of death


Bid Light within your aching heart

Let Christ reign on your throne

Let Jesus’ blood God’s grace impart

To melt your heart of stone …..

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.
