Believe, Receive & Live


I’ve learned to live to stand to fight

Rely on Jesus’ love

Trust in my Saviour’s guiding Light

Whilst on The Way above


No longer do I walk alone

No longer do I fear

No longer do I moan and groan

For God is always near


He’s in my heart within my mind

Cleansing my precious soul

Guiding these eyes that once were blind

Toward my unseen goal


My hope is in my Father’s Son

My faith is in His name

With guarantee when all is done

He’ll take me through the flame


For His I am and His I’ll be

Along life’s complex ways

Both hand in hand in victory

Beyond the end of days


He’s here He’s there He’s everywhere

His great reward in hand

Eternity with him to share

Within The Promised Land


Receive The Lord God Jesus Christ

Revere His holy name

Believe that He was sacrificed

To take away our shame


We only need these facts to hear

Accept The Truth inside

Obey The Groom who’ll reappear

To claim you as His bride…..

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.
