God's Light Is On
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

God's Light is On


Although your war is far from won

Although Christ’s cloud draws near

Yet in my house God’s Light is on

And I’ve no need to fear


God’s Truth has come His love is mine

I’ve drank from Heaven’s Spring

Since grafted firmly in The Vine

Life’s brand new song I sing


Though battles come and conflicts rise

Demonic hoards persist

Through traps and snares through diverse lies

Obedience can resist


Obedience to The living Lord

Life’s King enthroned on high

To Him alone belongs my sword

Until I rise or die


Until my Saviour’s final call

Until my day of rest

The devil’s hoards may spit their gall

But I’ll be more than blest


I’ll stand watching world wisdom boast

Watching the proud walk tall

Then in true strength of Jesus’ Ghost

I’ll stand and watch them fall


Then I’ll arise with Christ God’s  Son

I’ll eat of Heaven’s fare

And with death’s sting long dead and gone

Eternal life I’ll share


So live to serve with joy or pain

Regardless peace or war

To live is Christ to die is gain

Through Heaven’s living Door.....

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.
