The World Should Know

The World Should Know


Each one who’ll live who’d death survive

May seek The Lord on high

Only to learn for souls to thrive

Our need has first to die


Egos must fail arrogance fall

Tears perhaps may flow

While shrivelling self waxing small

Must find no place to go


From north to south from east to west

For death of self to yield

One’s heart and soul one should invest

Till Heaven’s Truth’s revealed


When first these facts the heart can see

When Truth one’s soul has heard

Completely God can set us free

According to His Word


The living facts are everywhere

The Truth cries loud and clear

For all that Heaven has to share

Is brought while love is here


So close, we find that Christ is real

So close, we understand

That deep within He’s there to feel

Within His mighty hand


He’s Lord of all He’s Heaven’s King

Consuming fire within

Creator God of everything

Through whom victory’s to win


Who know God’s Lamb as Lord and friend

Who’ve drank of Heaven’s flow

Will know The Truth and comprehend

The world has need to know.....

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.
