Who Has Ears

Who Has Ears


The Holy Spirit’s everywhere

Setting the hopeless free

With grace true love He seeks to share

Yet who has eyes to see?


Who has ears Truth to hear?

Life’s facts to understand

Wisdom enough hell to fear

They’d turn to God as planned


They’d cease to slip with foolish pride

To err in self debris

They’d pray for Jesus’ Gift inside

To bring them liberty


To serve with heart with soul devout

To help this world in jail

To help her children lost in doubt

Who void of knowledge fail


Yet who’ll look to their wicked soul?

Who’ll recognise their plight?

Who’ll seek The Lord, who’d make them whole?

And put the foe to flight


Who’ll receive all Heaven will give?

Who’ll seek with Christ to rise?

Who through His blood will turn to live?

Knowing demonic lies


They’d sing no more the devil’s song

Nor strut hell’s shadowed path

They’d seek instead God’s chosen throng

To face no longer wrath          


They’d pray God opens eyes still blind

That hearing be restored

Request God’s Lamb more souls will find

To flee with them the sword…..

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.
