Is Christ Without

Is Christ Without


Is someone knocking at your door?

Is that a voice out there?

Has Jesus come from evermore?

His life and love to share


If Christ’s refused within one’s heart

If truth’s denied a place

We’ve drifted from The Lord apart

And from His state of grace


Praying God’s gift of faith be ours

To feel Salvation’s love

We need The Lamb’s redemptive powers

We need to seek above


Let faith broaden through every land

Pray God stretch forth His arm

That Light would shine as always planned

As shield from further harm


We’ve erred we’ve strayed through wanton lust

Sang hell’s most selfish songs

Before our bodies turn to dust

We need to right our wrongs


We need to love, on God depend

Bend only Christ our knee

Obey His will and understand

The Truth keeps people free


But if The Lord is yet without

If love is not within

Our soul’s condemned and without doubt

We still could die in sin


Best open God our doors my friend

Raise love upon the throne

Pray Christ our precious souls defend

And melt the heart of stone.....

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.
