Lord grace Your word to crush and break

To heal to make us whole

Forgive our folly help us make

Commitments for our soul


Commitments through Your Christ and Son

Your Spirit Truth and Light

To stand until we’ve finally won

Steadfast through the fight


Till love has sealed the devil’s fate

All demon hordes are bound

Committed Lord the loyal wait

To rise on Holy Ground


Committed to the work at hand

To service of the few

With wisdom, give to understand

Mysteries that pursue


Commit to check life’s every door

To pray to seek your face

Steadfast striving ever sure

Growing in love and grace


Till Heaven’s will on earth is done

Till victory’s in Your hand

Enable to fight the evil one

And aid the weak to stand


You’ve given faith power and trust

Your Guarantee in love

Whilst others turn in graves to dust

We’ll rise to You above


To help when neighbours fail and strive

To help young lambs to grow

Commit that we Your servants thrive      

Righteous within Your flow......

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.
