Within the Ranks of Love


Conceived upon The Winds of Love

Within the realm of fire

Through grace of Jesus Christ above

I have but one desire


I’ll stand a child of righteousness

A soldier of The King

A willing slave to He who’ll bless

Of whom the angels sing


Within The Hands of no more pain

Of no more tears of woe

Singing Love’s song Love’s sweet refrain

To all who fail to know


With fervour hearts would I ignite

With passion souls implore

Revealing Truth Salvation’s Light

Beyond death’s transient shore


Whispering here proclaiming there

Shouting where ere there’s need

With love, finesse, with zeal and care 

My Father’s flock to feed


Against the darkest evil force

With saints from every land

I’ll fight the fight I’ll set my course 

With Jesus hand in hand


Who’ll join me in Salvation’s plan?

Who’ll take life’s sword and shield?

Help family friends and fellow man

To see hell’s shadows yield


Allow the sun to rise on high

The moon of doubt deplete

Prepare against the foe to fight

Prepare your God to meet.....

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.
