Through Open Gates


So many ears The Truth have heard

So many eyes have seen

Yet only few believe The Word

Through which saved soul’s are clean


Through which one sees the devil’s lies

The shadows of deceit

Turning by faith man’s sinful eyes

To join life’s e true elite


Salvation comes complete and free

When hearts to Christ we bring

When to His name we bend our knee

And testify Him King


King of Heaven Sovereign of peace

Creator Lord of all

Who’s reign of love will never cease

Though earth and skies will fall


So blessed by grace are Jesus’ few

The bride who walked as dead

Who drank by grace of Heaven’s Dew

And ate of living Bread


Quickened to serve The Truth &Light

To witness love inside

To stand by faith to fight the fight

And on The Wind to ride


No heart of stone can ever see

No prideful soul hear

That which a fool says cannot be

Nor learn Him to fear


But thanks to God for Calvary’s Tree

For Love’s eternal flow

For Jesus’ blood and victory

Against the common foe.....

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.
