Jesus Is Mine

Jesus Is Mine


Power’s a gift of love divine

Truth is The Way to see                       

God’s the glory Jesus is mine

Heaven’s the victory


The thrill the touch the quiet voice

The moment of the dawn

When Christ becomes one’s fervent choice

When one becomes reborn


What miracles does life await?

What blessings lie ahead?

Serving this side of Heaven’s gate

Living with Christ once dead


Sitting amazed at Jesus’ feet

Life’s resolution made

Seeing the ancient foe retreat

Watching the darkness fade


While giving up one’s heart of stone

One’s soul as darkest night

Glory’s written for Jesus’ own

Life’s crown life’s robe of white


Committing all to Heaven’s Flame

With spirit, soul and mind

On Jesus’ cross one’s loathsome shame

To be as gold refined


Though life’s not rainbows in the sky

Nor dewdrops in a glade

To those who seek God’s face on high

Love’s restitution’s made


Love is the way faith is the door

Obedience is the key

Ours is life forever more

Once Jesus sets us free…..

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.
