Just One Moment


One moment Lord without You 

Could leave me feeling sad

Could lead to things I shouldn’t do 

And make the devil glad


One moment left without Your love

Could leave me in despair

Could leave the thought Life’s Way above

Was mine no more to share


One moment left without You

I know I now would  hate

The world could change my distant view

And faith would dissipate 


One moment’s sounds ten million years

Of misery and dread

Lonely till Your cloud appears

To raise me from the dead


The thought my God brings sorrow

Brings pain to most unknown

Just thinking of tomorrow

Before the judgement throne


So go nowhere without me

Take firm Your servant’s hand

Remain my God that I may see

And dwell Your Promised Land


Remain my God and never leave

Relieve me of my fears

Without Your love I’d always grieve

Shedding countless tears


One moment Lord, how could I stand?

How could I smile again?

Without us walking hand in hand

Would make my life in vain.....

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.
