The Battle's Fierce

The Battle's Fierce


Still faithless children are out there

Like sheep scattered in fear

Not knowing life is there’s to share

That God is always near


As sure as Jesus bore our shame

His blood cleansed free of sin

So sure today His Holy Flame

Has power one’s soul to win


Let’s pray for those yet lost and blind

Before Jesus’ return

That Heaven’s Truth will flood the mind

God’s Flame in hearts will burn


We pray You send Your Spirit Lord

Your promised guiding Light

That through Your Word Your mighty Sword

Will help us win the fight


For faith to stand life’s trials we seek

For peace on earth to share

Patients to help the weary weak

And love to render care


Life’s war is on, the battle fierce

The foe roams free and wild

So many wounded shedding tears

Must still be reconciled


We pray the rich will hear Your call

The poor will cease to cry

You hate to see a sinner fall

Condemned in shame to die


Again we pray to cleanse their past

To help them understand

That all before the final blast

May join us in Your hand......

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.
