Please Hear Me


Oh Lord my God let me hear

Soften my heart of stone

Embrace me for I’m plagued with fear

Feeling so all alone


I’ve walked in sinned I’ve failed so much

I’ve scandalized Your name

By faith I pray Your righteous touch

Will free me of my shame


You love me Lord but hate my sin

Salvation’s Your desire

So hear me as I pray within

Your Holy Ghost and Fire


Oh Lord my God I need Your Dove

Your Truth Your guiding Hand

I need His strength His selfless love

To walk The Way as planned


I’m helpless walking on my own

Too weak the foe to fight

Please hear me from Your mercy throne

Of unapproachable Light


You hear my words You see my heart

You know I’m speaking true

Permit me with a brand new start

A life walking with You


Forgive my shame my every flaw

Remove all foolish doubt

Anoint me with Your touch once more

And send your servant out


Despatch me north despatch me south

Send east and westward too

Anoint my hands my feet and mouth

That I may serve anew.....

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.
