Come Alive


Walking through life with heart of stone

With soul festooned in shame

Feeling in shadows all alone

Condemned to endless flame


Wake up and know it needn’t be

Arise lend an ear

Through Jesus’ blood one’ eyes may see

What darkness has to fear


Wake up, wake up and come alive

Wake up The Truth to see 

Taste of your God, drink up and thrive

By Jesus’ royal decree


Accept God’s Love receive His Light

Leave darkness far behind

In Jesus’ name arise and fight

The one who’d keep you blind


Come alive in Salvation’s hand

Alive to the vast unknown

Receive The Truth and understand

You’re truly not alone


The One True God’s alive and well

Who died the death of shame

Yet rose to save each soul from hell

Who’ll call upon His name


We’re not alone and not condemned

Nor destined for the sword

Life’s journey has no deadly end

When Christ we claim as Lord


By faith eyes see and hearts discern

By faith we cease to stray

By faith by grace we come to learn 

That Christ’s The Only Way…..

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.
