True Love Never Fails


No greater word was ever told

No suffering so grim

No greater love could ere unfold

Than that displayed through Him


He’s Heaven’s Love in truth and name

God’s love He longs to give

Through love He came, bore all man’s shame

That love through Him may live


Though God! He chose a human birth

As God’s true Lamb and Son

To blameless live, to die on earth

That victory may be won


With love splendid, divine, supreme

Positive, selfless, true

Only those found living its dream

Have endless life in view


Eternal grace, eternal love

With Jesus First & Last

Eternity joyful above

When time on earth has past


Such selfless love can never fail

Onward, beyond higher

Always will its strength prevail

When even tried by fire


Who’ve sampled in their darkest hour

Who’s tasted of its flow

Bear witness love’s awesome power

Is never slow to show


For He who’s Lord creation’s King

Who cannot fail nor fade

Says love surpasses everything

That He alone has made…..

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.
