Love on Fire


O my God for an angle’s voice

My song of love to sing

Sweet melody to bear my choice

Of words before my King


No harp or cymbal could compete

No trumpet could compare

Sitting beside my Saviour’s feet

Your love and grace to share


Jesus, Jesus clear and bold

My grateful heart would cry

All creation would praise unfold

Echoes streaming on high


My soul would glow my heart ignite

Presenting joyful praise

And O my God what sheer delight

Sincere my voice to raise


For You alone my soul can see

Open; my heart lays bare

While silently this harmony

Whole heartedly I share


Hear the highs the velvet lows

Refrains festooned with love

Accept this gift my heart bestows

To You enthroned above


If all the world my song could hear

Would feel the same as I

How many hearts would fill with cheer?

Would live and never die


O Lord my God I love You dear

You’ve heard my soul proclaim

Revealing all while standing here

With heart and soul aflame.....

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.
