How  Wonderful

 

How wonderful it feels to be

Beneath salvation’s wing

Elated, ecstatic, vibrant, free

How can I fail to sing?

 

Through Him alone was paid the price

Your living Son and Seed

The lamb You chose as Sacrifice

To meet man’s every need

 

Through Him my God was Heaven made

The earth and all we see

The universe and all displayed

Through Jesus came to be

 

Jesus, Jeshua, Lord divine

Great joy amazing peace

With grace my God Your love is mine

How can my praises cease

 

 Infinite perfect faithful strong

Always and ever true

Nowhere else will this child belong

Than holding fast to You

 

Praise God praise Christ o soul born free

Shower with boundless love

Lift high The King of victory

Upon His throne above

 

Ever upward fixing my gaze

The future plain in sight

Faithful buoyant hopeful my praise

Revealing true delight

 

Father, Father hear my prayer

Thank You for all You’ve done

For all the love You’re pleased to share

Through Christ Your Lamb & Son…..

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.
