Through Christ I Know

Through Christ I know


Who knows what’s hidden up ahead?

What’s waiting round the bend?

When in this life one’s flesh is dead?

When time has met its end


What waiting at the judgment seat?

Beyond this realm of lies

When God Himself we rise to meet

And face those piercing eyes


When Truth’s revealed, where darkness fails

When lives are all laid bare

When God removes our trusted veils

And Judgment’s standing there


What happens when all lies are seen?

When all deceit’s made clear

Where only Christ can intervene

To free a soul of fear


What waits for those who self now please

Who’ve lived with hearts as stone?

Who’ve died and seen no victories

Who Christ, have never known


Thank God by grace one may endure

Free of eternal shame

So here right now I’m making sure

Calling His righteous name


His name is Jesus Prince Of Peace

The Lamb who chose to die

The King of kings who’ll never cease

To reign as Lord on high


All praise to God my Saviour true

To Christ my Friend divine

I know The Path I must pursue

Where endless joy is mine.....

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.
