What Do We Need?

What Do We Need?


Oh Lord my God how can it be?

Why should the world dismay?

How can most children fail to see

What You Yourself display?


What Christ upon the cross revealed

His death made crystal clear

Why do the facts remain concealed?

As though You’ve loved in vain


While hearts desire doing good

While souls adore The Light   

Why don’t we live the way we should?

And take from darkness flight


Your Word’s here for all to read

Although its plainly true

Although You meet Your children’s need

What clouds The Truth from view?


Has Satan such authority?

Are demons all so strong?

Will lies deny us victory?

Are selfish ways so wrong?


What does one need my God to win?

How does one take a stand?

How do we chain and bind our sin

And thus control our land


How do we stop the devil Lord?

Call forth The Wind on high

Receive the strength to wield the sword

And cease on earth to die


You say true love’s The only Way

Through Christ Your Lamb and Son

Lord touch more eyes to see this day

That victory may be won.....

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.
