I See

 

Through hope, through faith, through blood divine

No longer am I blind

Since Jesus’ hand took hold of mine

When grace embraced my mind

 

I saw as light my soul caressed

As peace softened my heart

Causing darkness I long confessed

Immediately depart

 

I see the truth of selfless love

Divinity of grace

Calling children to rise above

Outside of time and space

 

To see God’s Lamb as Lord and King

In glory shining bright

The One of whom the angels sing

Upon His throne of light

 

The One who died yet lives to share

Salvation for one’s soul

Calling all sinners everywhere

To seek and find life’s goal

 

To see the things that no one’s heard

No shameful eye can see

Mysteries veiled within God’s Word

Of things about to be

 

Regardless what we’ve said and done

If old, young, rich or poor

God wants us all through Christ His Son

Life’s many trials endure

 

I see these things and so much more

I see the turning tide

For all who’ll enter Heaven’s door

With Jesus side by side.....

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.
