Let Nothing Cheat You

Let Nothing Cheat You


As none can rise to depths below

No one can steep too high

No one can reap but what they sow

Or live before they die


I praise The Lord my eyes can see

I’m in The Light today

I have my Father’s Guarantee

And love’s become my way


Nothing will cheat me of God’s Word

Nothing will make me sway

I’ll practice what I’ve truly heard

And Jesus Christ obey


Who’d be a fool to play the clown?

Knowing that all is well

Amidst the shadows lose life’s crown

Rejoin the queue to hell


Let Heaven’s wisdom speak its piece

Lend God a while your ear

Let knowledge of The Truth increase

Learn Christ’s name to fear


He’s Lord of lords He’s Heaven’s King

Creator God divine

Should I refuse His praise to sing

Knowing that His is mine


I’m all agog I’m all askew

Excited more and more

The living God has made me new

And opened Heaven’s door


I bless The Lord for life on earth

For all I’ve had to see

But wonders now through second birth

For ever more shall be....

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.
