Be Light


Arise! God says your Light has dawned

Your lamp you need to trim

You’ve heard my Son, today be warned

Rise up and follow Him


Walk steadily with life in view

Along the narrow way

Though many walk away from you

Though friends and family stray


Through Jesus let your life be light

Shining on neighbour’s lives

Glowing on strangers in the night

Where Satan lives and thrives


Reveal to all, your Saviour’s love

Through whom all need to pray

Make known to them My Light above

Exposes foul decay


Decay that closes Heaven’s door

Widens the devil’s gate

Preparing thus his snares once more

With hell’s revolting bait


Reveal The Truth blind eyes to see

Reveal love’s guiding hand

Upon your face, on bended knee

Until they understand


Be light, be true, become as salt

Season my lambs with love

Be wise, be shrewd, reveal each fault

Barring The Way above


Be light my child where ere you go

Shining for all you’re worth

Gather your friend inform your foe

Enlighten fallen earth…..

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.
