Change of Heart & Name


I’m full of joy so richly blessed

Of Christ I’m never shy

I’ll journey through this world as guest

Until the day I die


Though old, grey, though not quite dead

The grave my flesh may see

The soul whose eaten Heaven’s Bread

Will rise complete and free


Free of sin of eternal wrath

Through Jesus’ blameless blood

Free to travel Christ’s trodden path

Living The Way I should


It’s not too late to change your ways

Seek Jesus’ help on high

Fix on Him your fervent gaze

Or least of all to try


For God can see a troubled soul

The heart of those still blind

Seeking someone to make them whole

Searching for peace of mind


God sees the filth that keeps us bound

Lost, in satanic lies

He sees who seek the higher ground

In righteousness to rise


He sees who kill, rape, cheat, connive

Deceivers greedy for gain

Liars, thieves believing to thrive

Hoping with Christ to reign


Only who turn to live anew

Washed clean in Heaven’s Flame

As virgin bride God’s chosen few

Receive The Bride-Groom’s name......

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.
