The Real Thing


I once was dead but now alive

My days are full of spring

Through all life’s storms I will survive

For I have The Real Thing


I’ve love I’ve grace I’ve Heaven’s Light

Heaven’s Fire inside

Power to stand, Heavenly sight

Before the last divide


I know the facts of Jesus Christ

The Truth The Light The Way

I know God’s Lamb was sacrificed

For me to rise one day


Now I’m rich where once so poor

Once sick now fit and well

Even from death I’ve found The Cure

Though angels burn in hell


I needn’t run I needn’t hide

No penny need I pay

Through Jesus blood life qualified

Right here right now today


My King’s arranged a place for me

The Lord of all the earth

To Heaven too I have The Key

Since Jesus’ second birth


I’ve ring I’ve robe a mansion too

A crown of purest gold

God’s love to drink as morning dew

With all the saints of old


All this and more has God prepared

For all who Christ receive

Accept The Truth God here has shared

And through His help believe.....

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.
