Righteousness Rules


In righteousness enthroned on high

Beyond life’s pearly door

Reigns He who chose for man to die

And live forever more


Who’ll recognise The Living One

God’s Word and righteous Sword

Who’ll see in Him God’s Lamb and Son

And take Him as their Lord


These too! The Lord will recognise

These few, He’ll call His own

He’ll take the veil from off our eyes

And touch our hearts of stone


He’ll free our souls and fill with Light

Strengthen the young and old

Anoint with oil, give robes of white

And crowns of purest gold


Showing grace He’ll give us power

The right to rise above

Treasures deep with He’ll shower

With endless perfect love


Who but a fool would this decline?

Refuse to be God’s child?

Walk with creation’s King divine?

Completely reconciled


Who’ll ask of God through Christ His Son?

For faith with Christ to be

To find when life’s great race is run

They’ve total victory


Virtuously rules The Living Lord

With righteous hand held high

Will you escape His judgement sword?

Or hope in hell to die.....?

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.
