Hope in Faith


Is not death’s banner flying high?

Harvesting night and day!

What hope is left the day we die?

When sin’s vast wage we pay


Can someone hope to flee from hell?

Regardless of one’s past?

Will Jesus’ blood make all things well?

And set one free at last


Can one repent and truly live?

Rely on hope supreme

Receive in faith all God would give

From life’s eternal Stream


When turning backs to wanton sin

Though heights we fail to climb

Life’s race by faith can man still win

And stand the test of time


Believing on The Father’s Word

Christ Jesus came to save

Life changes through the facts we’ve heard

Can save us from the grave


What else but love would pay the cost?

What else but love would try?

Who else would love the sick the lost?

Condemned in filth to die


When one with God when one with Christ

When of the chosen few

Believing Jesus sacrificed

We’ll drink of Heaven’s Dew


Life is beyond the veil of death

Beyond The Father’s door

In Jesus’ hand with Heaven’s Breath

Eternity is sure.....

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.
