Who Will?

Who Will?

 

Unseen vigour will come within

Power to most unknown

A force to love to combat sin

To melt a heart of stone

 

Who’ll believe The Promise made?

Believe God at His Word?

Remain, when all around them fade?

Standing on what they’ve heard

 

Who will accept this strength divine?

Who’ll live to be reborn?

Say through God’s Pledge life will be mine

Beyond the final dawn

 

Who’ll place their faith in the unseen?

Who’ll stand the test of life?

Who’ll be faithful a faithful queen?

Regardless of the strife

 

Who’ll condemn their house on sand?

Picture life’s unseen goal

Believe by faith to understand?

And save their sinful soul

 

Who’ll accept The risen Lord?

The Lamb who once was slain

Take in their hand His faithful sword?

Regardless of the pain

 

Who’ll forsake their worldly share?

Silver jewels and gold

Life’s beckoning lights earth’s tempting fare

To dwell within The Fold

 

As sheep of Christ The Father’s Son

As soldiers of The King

Serving until the war is won

Life’s victory song to sing......

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.
