Prove Love's Wisdom

 

We’ve erred we’ve strayed we’ve killed and lied

Opposed our Father’s hand

Our shameful deeds have multiplied

Like grains of common sand

 

Yet God would open sinful eyes

Would cleanse each sinful heart

Would guide one’s soul to paradise

Giving a brand new start

 

He knows the thief all those who lie

Who kill who steal who cheat

Yet none of which will truly die

Who’ll learn at Jesus’ feet?

 

But who’ll believe what Jesus taught

Consider Heaven’s Word?

Who’ll acknowledge The Lord’s report?

And practice what they’ve heard

 

Who’ll take in hand life’s living book?

Seek out the facts within

Who’ll drink their fill from Heaven’s brook?

And cleanse their soul of sin

 

Who’ll bow their knee, seek Jesus’ face?

Who’ll change the way they live

Receive life’s crown life’s saving grace

From He who died to give

 

Who will receive The Promise made?

Lock tight to sin their door

Within love’s flow to swim and wade

Till safe on Heaven’s shore

 

Who’ll prove the wisdom of our King?

The love of Jesus Christ

Rising transformed on eagle’s wing

Through lives now sacrificed…..

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.
