Bending My Knees (anew)


As You are God and You are there

Christ Jesus died for me

Then answer please this sinner’s prayer

Please come and set me free


As You are God, absolute real

Jesus is truly Lord

Consider please this child’s appeal

Save from the devil’s sword


As You are God come help me please

Forgive my foolish past

Enable me on bended knees

Receive true peace at last


As You are God, remove my doubt

Give faith, wide eyes to see

Reveal what life is all about

Why death has yet to be


As You are God please cleanse my soul

Make clean my filthy heart

Humble my spirit, make me whole

And grant a brand new start


As You are God my life pursue

Forgive me when astray

Carry me home to live with you

Forever and a day


As You are God Salvation’s Well

The Bible’s really true

The sting has gone from death and hell

For those who trust in You


As You are God full truth, full grace

Father full endless love

Prepare for me a resting place

With Christ Your Son above…..

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.
