Give, Give, Give in Love


In giving of self there’s nothing new

God gave to us His Son

Give as The Lord has given you

Till life through grace is won


Give in wealth in poverty too

With heart flowing with love

See yourself what giving can do

Through Jesus Christ above


Give to the weak climbing God’s hill

Even the strong can fail

Yet blessings come with Heaven’s will

To free lost souls from jail


Give the needy who disbelieve

Through righteous lessons taught

Give to the poor, not to receive

But through The Lord’s report


Give it in truth because you care

Because your heart is right

Give to God’s children everywhere

To Heaven’s great delight


Give of your substance looking above

Think of the dead below

Giving, sharing, revealing love

Till Heaven’s blessings flow


Give another, count not the cost

Allow The Lord to lead

Give to the blind the deaf the lost

And plant life’s living Seed


Give to the left give to the right

Giving with both hands free

Meeting needs when no one’s in sight

Where none but God can see.....

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.
