If You Want

 

If you want joy and endless peace

Be rich as none before

If you want life to never cease?

And keys to God’s front door?

 

If you want to stand strong and whole

To wear a crown of gold

To see The Maker of your soul

And miracles unfold

 

If you want God your life to bless

The Promise Heaven made

Your wayward sin The Lord confess

So love will never fade

 

If you want passion in your heart

Treasures of Heaven’s King

In life to have a brand new start?

Eternity to sing

 

If you want to soar where angels are

Where eagles cannot rise

Fellowship with The Morning Star

Both sides of paradise

 

If you want to see all Heaven smile

Receive all God can give

To walk by grace an extra mile

So other souls may live

 

If you want never more to cry

Your inner man made pure

To know The Way to life on high

And want to want no more

 

Believe in God believe in Christ

Believe in Jesus’ name

Believe that He was sacrificed

To free your life of shame…..

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.
