Let Jessus

Let Jesus


In life we strive to quench one’s thirst

Receive of love one’s fill

But who considers Jesus first

And Heaven’s righteous will


Let’s cast aside each mask and guise 

Pretentious robes of man

Let wisdom see with probing eyes

The Lord’s eternal plan


Consider love and love’s intent

God’s hand His saving grace

Death’s recompense; on lives misspent

Ere judgements face to face


Let wisdom lay life’s shadows bare

Cause darkness’ reign to cease

So Light The Father has to share

May through one’s life increase


Till all God’s children learn to see

Love’s fruit grows rich and sweet

That Truth can set the captive free

To raise as life’s elite


For God to reign as constant guide

Let true love wear a crown

Allow His Spirit dwell inside

To pull the idols down


Let Jesus fill both cup and plate

Let Jesus bless your soul 

Right now; and not some future date

Allow Him make you whole


Believe in Christ His life His death

Accept He’s God’s true Son

Receive through Him God’s lasting Breath

Through whom life’s race is won…..

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.
