Testament In Tears


Lord free my soul remove my pain

Make clean my filthy heart

Allow me to be born again

And have a brand new start


I’m plagued with guilt so full of sin

A stench to Heaven high

What hope have I Your love to win

If in this state I’d die


I scarcely sleep with so much fear

My life is so misspent

Yet through Your Son You’re always near

For sinners who repent


 I’m crying Lord from deep inside

I’m here on bended knee

There’s nothing that I seek to hide

Nothing You cannot see


You’re King of kings You’re Lord of all

Creator God alone

I beg forgiveness lest I fall

Into the deep unknown


Accept this child’s apology

This testament I pray

Through Jesus’ blood please set me free

That I may walk Your Way


I’m pleading Lord, please don’t decline

You know I’m speaking true

Allow salvation to be mine

That I may serve but You


My future lies within Your hand 

My self to You I give

I’ve left the house I built on sand

Hoping in Yours to live…..

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.
